FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- The operators of Island Soap House greeted scores of onlookers, shoppers and nearby store owners with bright smiles and luxurious scents as they launched their new business, during the official opening of the Churchill Square recently.
On Friday, 20th April, Executives of The Grand Bahama Port Authority, Limited (GBPA) marked the completion of its Downtown Turnaround Project, with a brief ceremony, unveiling the historical Sir Winston Churchill bust and officially opening a new mini Bahamian shopping village within the Churchill Square. Kiosk operators shared that the GBPA project was an impressive initiative to revitalise the city’s centre.
As music entertained visitors, they were also treated to an array of soap products made by the newly opened, Island Soap House. Kiosks operators Monique Wipf and Demeka Jones shared that all products displayed at the kiosks were handmade and created right here on Grand Bahama. They went on to explain that soaps are made using a variety of organic oils, butters and essential oils, and everything is blended right here in Freeport. “We try to offer unique and fun soap products for customers of all ages,” stated Wipf.
Ranging from Cold Process and Vegetable Glycerin soaps to bubble bath bars and cupcake soaps, Island Soap House’s display of goodies, looked good enough to eat, literally. “Everything is unique, fun and interesting even for kids,” Jones shared, “We have our Island Essentials line of organic and all natural products for sensitive skin and the more serious shoppers. We also make our Skin Desserts for the fun loving shoppers who simply want to indulge themselves in a sweet treat. Either way, we have something for everyone,” said Jones.
Curious onlookers were captivated by the multi colored soaps of all different shapes, sizes and fragrances. Display baskets of sample soaps, bath fizzies and bubble bars disappeared as quickly as they filled. There were beautifully decorated cupcake soaps, an entire cake soap, Bahamian coffee soap and scented soap loaves being cut in front of customers.
When asked how the first day of business turned out, Wipf and Jones nodded enthusiastically with smiles, “It was great, the ‘Exuma Rush’ and ‘Enchanted Kisses’ soap loaves were sold out, they were definitely the best sellers!” Wipf commented. “We’re looking forward to the summer events,” she stated.
