After four months of closure and renovations, SOL Warrens Service Station officially reopened today with much fanfare.

Sales Executive for Retail at SOL, Denise Mendes, told Barbados TODAY customers were treated to entertainment, give aways and other social activities.

In 2005, SOL bought over the Shell network and retail stores in Barbados and rebranded the business. The Warrens outlet — the fourth SOL branded service station on the island — is now employing 40 workers, 10 more than the “old” store.

“We have a fully home grown product. So the difference really is that the SOL brand is a local brand that everybody can be proud of. We have our ‘go further’ product, which is superior … in terms of economy. It gives you 10 kilometers more per tankful; so certainly that is something we would offer here, that the competitors certainly don’t have,” Mendes assured.

“In addition, we have a fully upgraded deli. We give you that welcoming, that Barbadian love. The customers, certainly since we have opened, said the staff here is extremely friendly. We have a set of people who enjoy what they do,” reported the SOL executive.

The SOL Warrens Service Station is opened 24 hours per day. (EJ)
