St. John’s Rural East Gears Up for the UPP ‘Small Business Pull-Up’

10

Last weekend, ‘Small Business Saturday’ was celebrated throughout the US to highlight the impact of money spent in local communities.

Meanwhile in Antigua and Barbuda, the ‘Small Business Pull-up’ led by the United Progressive Party (UPP), set a new record in the Constituency of St. John’s Rural West.

Patrons of this weekly initiative visited close to 50 small enterprises, sparking stronger support for “shopping within the community.”

The ‘Small Business Pull-up’ continues on Saturday December 3rd, and the tour will head to St. John’s Rural East.

A group of United Progressive Party (UPP) supporters will patronize eateries, bars, convenience stores and other enterprises throughout the Constituency.

The caravan will leave the Hope Institute in Clare Hall at 1:00 pm and patrons will “follow the music” to a number of small enterprises in Clare Hall, Skerritts Pasture, St. Johnson’s Village, Wireless, Sutherlands, Upper Gambles, Friars Hill and Cassada Gardens.

The team will also share the UPP’s Small Business Agenda for Development and Growth with vendors and owners.

Sean Bird, UPP Candidate for St. John’s Rural East stated, “I understand firsthand what it takes to run a small business, particularly in today’s tough economy.

The UPP wants to support as many of these small businesses as possible, to help boost their sales and visibility.”

UPP Political Leader, Harold Lovell, is pleased with the level of interest and support that has been generated via the ‘Small Biz Pull Up’ initiative.

“This mobile gathering has really taken off and has revealed a proliferation of small businesses across the island.

Many of our supporters look forward to the ‘Small Business Pull-up’ as part of their weekend entertainment.

We have two more constituencies left to cover, so I invite everyone to come out to support our these small enterprises, ” Lovell said.

Since late August, this UPP-led initiative has highlighted the important role that small businesses play in driving the economy.

As many recover from COVID-19 pandemic disruption, they are relying heavily on year end sales to help improve their bottom line.

  1. This is a great initiative. I enjoy following them on Facebook. There are so many small businesses in our country and they need our support. The UPP is on the right track.

    • Listening to POINTE FM on Saturday , I heard and saw the RAP sheet for SHEFFIELD BOWEN. Where is the hell UPP going with these CRIMINAL elements. I am predicting that SHEFFIELD BOWEN , FRANZ DEFREITAS , SEAN BIRD and ALGERNON “SERPENT” WATTS will resign before nomination day .I have never seen nor heard of a political party with that amount of CRIMINAL ELEMENTS.

      Hon. Gaston Browne will continue reading the remaining of the RAP sheet for BOWEN next Saturday then Gaston Browne and Milford Nicholas will start on Harold Lovell.

      Even the Political Leader of UPP is in HIGH COURT on a CRIMINAL. UPP DONE , DEAD , FINISHED and OUT OF EXISTENCE. UPP does not VET Their Candidates ??

    • Great initiative my AR*****se. UPP just crowding these establishments and NOT spending money. Another FAILED project by UPP.

      • Talking about failed projects. What is the real story behind IFX? That is what you need to shove up you ar*%!! Did Gaston Browne invest Antigua and Barbuda’s money? Always with his get rich schemes. The FBI is already on the case. Greedy scoundrels!!!

  2. SHEFFIELD BOWEN please drop out the race. We would never vote for you. Your CRIMINAL record is amazing. Whenever I hear your name I cried… My Cousin was MURDERED.

  3. The UPP has so many innovative ways to help people. This initiative has been a tremendous success. I love the feedback that Menace gave to Johnathan. Good job UPP
