San Pedro’s First Department Store
San Pedro’s first department store WINGS opened its doors last week Friday, December 16, 2005. Hundreds flocked to the store which carries a variety of items much like Mirab in Belize City, but focuses on name-brand clothing for all ages at low prices. The store is part of a chain of stores in Belize City and the Corozal Free Zone, which include the Bellagio and Mirage.
“I feel like I am in Chetumal shopping,” commented one customer waiting in line to make a purchase. The store is the only department store on the island and one of the largest.
