‘Diamonds’ Now At Capella

DIAMONDS International has opened its seventh and newest store on the island at Capella at Marigot Bay.

The store comes after the recent closure of Diamonds International’s Coconut Bay unit in Vieux Fort.

Company representatives were on hand for the brief opening ceremony where Diamonds International’s General Manager, Hugh Jones, thanked the staff for their efforts in getting the new store up and running. He also expressed his anxiety at working closely with the Capella at Marigot Bay management.

“The cooperation from Capella has been marvellous and, obviously, we look forward to a great tenure here in Marigot Bay,” said Jones.

Jones explained that after having been here for close to a decade and a half, his business was grateful for the opportunities that had led to the jewellery chain becoming a well-known establishment. The new venture, he said, was testimony to great effort on everyone’s part, especially his staff.

“I want to thank Saint Lucians. We’re a business that’s been here for quite some time and have been afforded the great opportunity by both the people and government. We’ve been here 14 years now and have progressed every year. That’s just the message I want to get out: that this store at Capella just typifies the effort that everybody’s willing to give to succeed,” Jones said.

General Manager at Capella at Marigot Bay, Jeroen Quint, said the new store is the result of a discussion he struck up with Jones about a possible partnership at Capella at Marigot Bay’s launch party last February. Given that both their clientele share same tastes, he said, the deal seemed perfect.

“This is really a start for us to work together hand in hand to bring business to Marigot Bay,” Quint said. “I think our clientele is the same. We both look for people that appreciate value, quality and service,” Quint said.

Apart from the new store at Capella at Marigot Bay, the jewellery store also has six other locations: two at Pointe Seraphine, two at La Place Carenage, and one each at Baywalk Shopping Mall and Windjammer Landing.

Stan Bishop began his career in journalism in March 2008 writing freelance for The VOICE newspaper for six weeks before being hired as a part-time journalist there when one of the company’s journalists was overseas on assignment.

Although he was initially told that the job would last only two weeks, he was able to demonstrate such high quality work that the company offered him a permanent job before that fortnight was over. Read full bio...
