Makes no sense at all. They came to the island as a distribution center for the local grocery businesses and were so busy they could not keep things on the shelf. They had a lot of problem getting things from Belize City to the island due to the ongoing problems with the barges. They then also opened as a retail center with pretty low prices, and again seemed to be busy. This is a loss for both the retail and wholesale consumer.

Could be Amanda but the fact remains San Cas could not keep up with the demand on the wholesale side. At times they had multiple containers coming to the island each week. Another wholesaler, Madisco has had similar problems with getting goods delivered from the mainland to the island. There has been and continues to be a real issue with marine freight services from the mainland to the island.
