Amazon is now plagued with counterfeit brand name good from third-party sellers. Since Amazon opened up their retail platform to every tom dick and roshan, many brand name items especially clothes that you buy have been counterfeit. Lots of stories about people buying Vans, Levi and Nike and they were fake. Nike has pulled out of Amazon. https://www.forbes.com/sites/forbesbusi ... 4342e864ff There are no real Nike products on Amazon anymore. Birkenstock gone too. Because they said Amazon won't do anything about this issue and they're fed up. But Jeff has to get that billion$$$$ to ride to space somehow so i don't blame him. https://www.nytimes.com/wirecutter/blog ... -products/

After Midnight or whatever the store was, used to have Lee jeans, and corduroy jeans (yes I liked them for some time)
Bluegrass moved from the back just off the elevator to where the games shop was by the original food court. I never noticed if any other stores carried gents Levi's

Seriously , get your xmas shopping gifts from NOW... with the current shipping delays and logistics out of China, many businesses here will NOT get any good for xmas, and probably into the first 6 months of 2022... We will have shortages of several items and electronics with the CHip shortage starting to hit more and more companies.
Lets hope our local fast food outlets do not get hit by the food chain supply as well , or they will be the next to start closing their doors due to lack of raw materials

Bailiffs have seized all of the equipment from the Wendy’s Chaguanas outlet because of outstanding rent owed.

And next week Tuesday, all of that equipment will be publicly auctioned off.

The Wendy’s restaurant in question was located at the Corner of la Clave Street and the Montrose Main Road in Chaguanas.

Pre Covid Wendy's wasn't looking all that healthy either. The branches used to always look empty and the one or tow times I went the menu was always missing stuff.

The downfall of Trinidad will always be the mass numbers of dotish people. Electing bad governments, not taking vaccines.
