Downtown Super Sale is Back for Mother’s Day Weekend

Bernard Wagner

It was conceived out of the idea of making the city competitive in its products and to encourage residents to buy at home instead of heading over the border to Chetumal. The Downtown Super Sale began pre-COVID, but came to a screeching halt when the pandemic hit. Two years later, the super sale is back and bigger than ever. With a zone for kids, food court, entertainment zone and a spot for entrepreneurs – Mayor Bernard Wagner says that it is timely.

“It’s a day where it’s not only for one side of the equation. Residents have the opportunity to get some savings, get some deals, save some money and get all your needs as a family.  But at the same time, the business owners get an opportunity to not have to wait until the months of October, November, December – those are the high sales months for most of the businesses in Belize – but now you have the opportunity to enjoy some measure of sales in the month of May June July August. So at the end of the day, it is spread. There are many zones. We have the established business zone where those traditional business houses – the Hofius, the Brodies, the Downtown Plaza – they are residents here on Albert Street. We have a beauty care zone, we have a kids zone, we have an entertainment zone, we have a food court zone and we also have a zone where our young entrepreneurs, people could visit that area and really see what they are doing and how they are contributing to the local economy; that is important.

this one here is huge. When we did the first announcement, my P.R. team says that the calls that they got in the first week was over seventy-five confirmed businesses participating. That has since swell to over a hundred plus business, young entrepreneurs, people seeking to drive sales into their areas. So we are really enthused about that. And a city is not just the tall buildings and the business community; you have to bring life to your city. And I think this occasion gives us the opportunity to bring life into our city.”
