According to him, the project has so much promise and potential. It will be a mall that changes the community’s landscape. Also, the Berbice mall is expected to spur the region’s economic development.

The project is expected to drive the Palmyra site’s transformation. It is also anticipated to generate thousands of job opportunities for the surrounding region. Other major projects are anticipated to begin construction there soon as well.

While they stand on the ground, according to Ahamad, they have aspirations for a cutting-edge mall. The mall is going to serve as both a center for the community and a commercial hub.

What the Berbice mall will feature

It is said that the facility will have a cinema, gaming zones, family-friendly activities, retail outlets, as well as franchised outlets.

Addressing the occasion’s attendees on behalf of President Irfaan Ali, who was unable to be present, Chairman of Region Six David Armogan pointed out that the Palmyra area was at one time merely canefields. He said that it is currently transforming beyond that.

Armogan lauded the Sheriff Group’s initiative. He pointed out that the new mall is an example of the belief investors have shown in the region. More and more individuals are expressing interest in investing in the area.

He claims that he strongly urged this area’s development. Furthermore, he voiced the hope that other investors would do the same.

The project is anticipated to offer jobs and other opportunities for the residents of Berbice, according to Samantha Reid, President of the Berbice Chamber of Commerce, who also commended the initiative in her remarks.
