(PRESS RELEASE) — Excellent Stores St.Lucia this week held its first annual Christmas Family Fun Day and Motorcade.
The event commenced with a motorcade from Rodney Bay to the Derek Walcott Square where Santa and his Elves dished out gifts and Christmas cheer to children of the community. The motorcade then headed back to the store at the Johnson’s centre in Rodney Bay for photo ops with Santa, cotton candy, bouncy castles, face painting and other wonderful treats. Director at Excellent Stores Limited, Lisa Siu Chong is humbled that Excellent Stores St.Lucia was able to bring smiles to the faces of children this Christmas.
“The Christmas season has always been core to the history and operations of Excellent Stores and in more ways than one, it’s one of the most significant seasons for our Company because of the values of joy and thanksgiving that it signifies. Not only have we gained the reputation of being a leading retailer for Christmas items, but its’ through our humanitarian efforts, that we have become renowned as the Christmas Store.
“ This is our first year of operation in St.Lucia and for us it’s just a natural part of our operation to give back to the community. We are a family run business, therefore we kept the theme family based. Our own employees’ children were also part of the celebrations. We are looking forward to doing greater community activities in the coming year and would like to wish our customers a Very Merry Christmas with Excellent Stores!”
Parents and children expressed having a wonderful time at the event. Some even stating that this would probably be the only christmas event that their child may attend.
“ I am very excited because this was my first time meeting Santa Claus . He asked me if I was naughty or nice and he gave me a gift when I said nice!” exclaimed one child
“ The event was a very good gesture from Excellent Stores, my two children both got gifts..we even followed them back to the store for more fun,” one parent stated
