Supermarkets in Trinidad and Tobago to be open 24 hours during Christmas season

The Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago Dr Keith Rowley during a press conference announced the supermarkets and food supply chain in the country will be allowed to open 24 hours in view of the Christmas season from December 10 to January 3, 2021. 

Dr Rowley said, “In anticipation of the Christmas shopping and in collaboration with the suppliers of Christmas goodies and the groceries here, we expect in the coming days there would be more and more people going to do their Christmas shopping. 

“We have agreed that we would allow groceries at the request of the grocers, and with our own analysis, groceries and supermarkets, we would allow those places to open for 24 hours. That will spread out the number of people because their time of going there is anytime, any day between December 10 and January 3.
