Chaguanas Mayor seeks to ensure sustainability of businesses in the Borough after Movietowne’s closure

“A sad day for Chaguanas.”

That’s how Chaguanas Mayor Faaiq Mohammed described the closure of Movietowne’s Chaguanas branch.

The company founder, Derek Chin, made the announcement on Sunday, citing the Covid-19 pandemic, the uncertainty of the economy and issues with the landlord. However, he said the other branches would reopen once the restrictions are lifted.

Mohammed said, “We lost a good source of entertainment for families and friends. It’s troubling to see businesses close knowing many will be unemployed as a result.

He said: “It is disheartening that I heard this news and we will have to examine other areas to ensure the sustainability of other business within the borough.”
