Future Energy Source Company Limited (FESCO) is celebrating the opening of its first FYC Supermarket.

FESCO, which currently operates 14 locations islandwide with FYC Express Convenience Stores located at seven of these locations, held launched its FYC Supermarket at its Bodles, St Catherine location with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on November 26.

With The FYC Supermarket, FESCO says it is enhancing its offerings in the retail space. The full-service FYC Supermarket includes a wide range of food, beverages and household products and is also home to a Scotiabank ATM, a Deli and a Devon House I Scream outlet with opening hours currently 5:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. 

“We are pleased to officially open the doors of our first FYC Supermarket. Our new FYC Supermarket gives us an opportunity to provide our customers with a one-stop shopping destination experience. Customers can now fuel their vehicles, do their grocery shopping and even enjoy a scoop or two of Devon House I Scream before they depart,” said Jhanelle Barnes, manager and principal of FESCO Bodles.

Barnes added: “This prime location in Bodles, St. Catherine is located on the Old Harbour main road and is also within close proximity to Old Harbour and May Pen, which serves the many housing complexes within a five to 10 mile radius.” 

“FESCO’s build out plan includes introducing ‘Destination Stations’ that are unique to each community. We want to encourage the development of FESCO service stations that function as a community hub, where people can easily come and get everything they need at one location.”
