GB vendors say Grand Lucaya their lifeline

The Grand Lucayan hotel.

Vendors that occupy the straw market in Port Lucaya Market Place in Grand Bahama told Eyewitness News on Wednesday, that they remain optimistic about government’s plan to buy the now-closed Grand Lucaya Resort.

Vendors said government’s investment in the property would improve their economic standing at a critical time, as they insisted they have fallen on hard times since the resort closed in 2016.
