i think most fast food outlets buyers are take away so they can hold strain until country fully reopens, but how can any dine in restaurant survive on take away if d take away rate for them is so low that its operating a loss, ppl eh have $ to be buying takeaway during this hard times

like he also said even if all business open back in d morning it will take this country a while to get back on its feet since about half of d buying public remains unemployed during lockdown & business will have to trim their staff to stay afloat ...


ALL business chambers are in agreement .

Even CA Pilots understand.

Even the PM understands

At one point in time I only did alignment by them... couldn't afford a 2.5k single Michelin. There was an older guy there who was good. Kept a good house. Stopped going years now so not sure if he's around. Was in Maraval last time I saw him.

I did alignment there several times and the service was good
bought michelins a few times too when they had the 4 for 3 sale which is not bad
you pay about 1.8 times the price of a regular tire which is a good tire and lasts around 2x
of course it is a bigger upfront cost

Yup they are excellent tyres and bought a used set once and could see why ppl buy them but for someone who abused their tyres spending that amount never made sense. I usually landed equivalent spec tyres for much cheaper.

I’m saddened to see them go. The thing is, I’ve noticed a slow disappearance of brand name tyres locally. Who do we go to now to get legitimate brand name Michelin’s etc? Most tyre shops now have other non recognized brands selling cheap, so in keeping with tough times, when people require tyres, they rather pay 20% the cost in a questionable brand over that of a high value brand. I maybe wrong but I’m a hard core car nut and I like to observe tyres especially in traffic. I see premium cars with cheap tyres all the time. That said, I hope we do have an alternative dealer locally for said Michelin’s. Outside of that, tire rack it is.

I wonder if "cease operations" means

"windup company and struck off the companies register",

or just,

"we stop operating to open back in a year or so."

I went in the Maraval branch to pick some treats but the staff and light skinned manager behind the counter didn’t seem interested.
Took my money elsewhere.
PS: The service at the Park Street branch was way better even though it’s just a hole in the wall outlet.

He could keep all his products.

Those who are praising him would also praise the estate foreman from the 1800s

People can make a living without those like him.

That not only affecting tires. I noticing a lot of retailers stocking more Chinese products to replace familiar brands. Yeah, China manufactures a range of products for major companies, but these products appearing locally have heavy, nonsensical Engrish on the packaging.

Businesses come and go.
If there is a demand, someone will try to satisfy it.

All those shouting gloom and doom should jump out at the first opportunity

I try to sidestep conspiracies and politics, but its not a far-fetched thought . The liteskins were bitiching about being affected by the online shopping habits and internet advertising drying up their media house profits, etc. Maybe this is their chance to reclaim it somehow?

Also I always expected every international franchise here to be owned by them already

On the wrightson road branch there is a new banner saying "Track quick service"
so it appears track is takign over, if they will still sell michelin tires will have to be seen.

Remember there are people who profit from war and conflict.
There is treasure to be found everywhere if you put your mind to it.
It’s just a question of how far will you go.
