A notable shipping company that first made its imprint in The Bahamas on 2014, has officially opened its newest location, the fifth, in Grand Bahama.
Offering a variety of services, including a free United States shipping address, United States drop off and pick up services as well as shipping to the Family Islands, ‘Mr. Ship It’ for the past five years has offered outstanding service to their customers throughout The Bahamas and are now pleased to offer the same to residents of Grand Bahama.
Prior to the official grand opening party at their Freeport location on Saturday, January 26, Kimberley McIntosh, Freeport Branch Office Manager expressed, “Today we are having our grand opening and we are encouraging persons to come on in, sign up and be eligible to win one of our many prizes that we are offering for raffle. We also have treats here for the children and our staff is here, ready and willing to assist anyone who may need help signing up to become a customer of Mr. Ship It for all of their future shipping needs.”
She continued by giving an overview of Mr. Ship It and its presence throughout The Bahamas. Mr. Ship It opened its first office in the capital in 2014. Two locations have since been opened in Nassau, one in Exuma, one in Eleuthera and now, one in Freeport.
“Despite the economic challenges that we are having here in Freeport, they are taking a chance with us and thus far, we have proven it was the right decision. We are also going to encourage more persons in the Freeport community to sign up, because right now we are just shipping twice per week. But the more people that sign up, we will be able to offer shipping daily.
“Right now, we have a total staff of three at our Freeport office, but as the business grows so will the staff.
“Mr. Ship It, having been in business since 2014, with this fifth location being added has employed over 40 Bahamians. We are a company that is here to help the economy and grow with the economy,” said McIntosh.
Ask what sets Mr. Ship It apart from the existing shipping companies on the island, McIntosh expressed, “I think personally, for me, in Grand Bahama we will prove ourselves with our rates, definitely with our customer service and satisfaction guaranteed. We have no hidden costs, what you see is what you get and once the word gets around, people will then make us their choice for shipping needs. Also, effective the first week in February, for those that may not have a debit or credit card, you can come in and we will order your items for you, with a small fee added on,” she revealed.
“Our store hours are Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Someone is always here to serve you and for those who cannot make it in, they can visit on our website www.mrshipit.com. It is a very fact filled website with all of the information that you can ever ask for or should you have any concerns, everything is there.”
In conclusion McIntosh noted, “Do not get downtrodden because of the economy, a lot of people are still not in the position to travel abroad so shipping is still the only means to get their items to them at home.”
Despite inclement weather Mr. Ship It’s grand opening party at Duke Leon Plaza location, was dubbed a success.
