Tribune Freeport Reporter


BAHARI Bahamas is returning to Grand Bahama with a pop-up shop to launch its new independence collection at the Port Lucaya Marketplace.

The Bahamian brand is hosting a limited pop-up event, which started yesterday, to showcase its new line of independence T-shirts, tunics, body-con dresses, swimsuits, and shorts.

Kerel Pinder, public relations director for Bahari, said the brand is making a comeback to Grand Bahama after Hurricane Dorian. She said the location at Port Lucaya Marketplace is ideal for both tourists and locals.

“The local community has always supported Bahari, but this move now introduces the Bahari brand to our tourists. And this is an amazing location,” she said. “This three-day pop-up shop will allow persons to experience the new independence collection and so they can get their summer gear.”

Ms Pinder said that Bahari’s initial brand launch was in 2014. The company opened its first retail store in Grand Bahama in November that same year.

“They have had so many collections since then that has been so amazing,” she said.

There are plans to reestablish a more permanent presence in Grand Bahama, which is tentatively scheduled for the end of 2021 at Port Lucaya Marketplace.

Ms Pinder stressed that it is important for Bahamians to invest in local businesses.

“It gives encouragement and inspiration to the younger generation. And I think Bahari is a brand that brings quality and excellence, so you will want to support and want to wear it. It is a company we have seen grow from the beginning to now,” she said.
