Foster’s Camana Bay to open on 31 Oct

Foster’s is opening its new 60,000 square foot supermarket in Camana Bay on 31 Oct. at 10:30am. The supermarket operator broke ground on what will be its largest location in May 2018.

In a press release, Foster’s announced the Camana Bay store will feature expanded grocery, dairy, frozen, health and beauty, meat, seafood and produce departments with a larger selection of vegan and vegetarian products. Customers will also be able to shop from bulk food tables featuring nearly 100 package-free food items.

In addition, the new store will have a floral department, pharmacy, money-transfer services and the Bay Market Café, a deli-style eatery with indoor and outdoor seating areas.

“Camana Bay is a growing, and important, part of Cayman and its ever-evolving community,” Foster’s managing director Woody Foster said. “Opening this store gives us the flexibility to better our approach to general customer offerings and prepared foods.”

Prices at its Camana Bay location would not be higher than at other Foster’s supermakets, the release said.

“Our pricing structure is the same across all of our locations. If something is $2.99 at Foster’s Republix, it will be $2.99 at Foster’s Camana Bay,” marketing senior manager Julian Foster said. “Some organic and specialty products may have a higher price tag, but that comes with the nature of the product.”

The supermarket will be accessible from either Solaris Avenue or Bismarckia Way, with the parking lot able to accommodate nearly 400 vehicles, including three electric vehicle-charging stations.

Foster’s Strand will permanently close its doors on Saturday, 26 Oct. at 11pm, followed by Bay Market on Tuesday, 29 Oct. at 6pm. Online ordering at Bay Market will not be available from 25 Oct., but will return on 1 Nov. Foster’s Camana Bay will be  open from 7am to 11pm, Monday to Saturday, beginning on 1 Nov.
