It is unusual for a chandlery to win an award for Excellence in Tourism but that accolade was bestowed on Budget Marine Grenada by the Grenada Chamber of Industry and Commerce in December.

Budget Marine Grenada has recently undergone expansion of its store to provide a wider range of services and products for its customers. This now includes a free bus service operating along Grenada’s south coast, which enables customers to visit the store once a week free of charge and in comfort.

Nicholas George, manager of Budget Marine Grenada, said: “I want all members of staff to understand that we could not have been nominated much less win this award unless it was seen from the outside that we are making a considerable contribution towards tourism here in Grenada. It just shows that it doesn’t really matter the number of staff you have or the type of business you are into, once you go the extra mile to ensure that visitors to this island are treated the way they are supposed to be, you will be recognized accordingly.”

He added, “We are very proud of receiving this award and will be setting it up prominently on the shop floor.”
