FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- “Is there room for growth in today’s economy?” is what young Bahamian entrepreneur James Roker Jr. asked himself. He took on the challenge and at only age 21 is the owner of what, for the Bahamas, is a very exciting shop.
The 44th of May is a European style men and women's accessories store with a large selection of affordable costume jewellery, shawls, sunglasses, handbags etc. Not only are the style of the accessories unique but James went to the next level regarding display and decoration of the shop.
The 44th of May is a total experience of shopping. Costumer service, attention, and sharing the love James has for his products are the main keys for a successful business. Listening to the public and taking the time to let the customer browse through the many items he feels will make a visit to The 44th of May very pleasant.
“I want the shop to be a place where you feel at home. Women always seem to find what they need on this island; but for men to have one place where they can buy a watch, necklace, bracelet, tam, shawl, sunglasses etc., is unique on Grand Bahama. We hope to be of service for many years to come and grow into a one-stop shop that has everything you need to go with your outfit,” James says.Photo: Young Bahamian entrepreneur James Roker Jr. in The 44th of May.
