CTL receives international recognition

Clarence Thomas Limited (CTL) Home Center this month received international recognition in the Newsworthy Magazine published by Orgill, which is a worldwide distributor in the home improvement industry.

The local retail giant, over its 50 years, has been a stand-out in the community, and has earned multiple business awards. It said it has been recognized by the British Virgin Islands (BVI) government for embarking on an employee wellness programme.

This month, the Newsworthy Magazine, in an article titled Standing Out In The Community, documents the humble beginnings of Clarence Thomas Limited.

It also touched on the company’s development into CTL Home Center, which is the main shopping hub in the BVI for home construction, maintenance, household, and home improvement products.

In relation to the quality products and customer service available at CTL Home Center, Managing Director Michael Thomas told Newsworthy Magazine: “We try to do a better job [at selecting and] presenting the products, and offering more product knowledge at better price points.”

He also thanked Orgill for their almost 30-year-old partnership. “Orgill allows us to grow our categories. Before [our partnership], plumbing, tools and hardware were our primary offerings. Working with Orgill allowed us to get further involved in other areas such as housewares and electrical.”

CTL Home Center continues to expand its services at the new Fish Bay Superstore on Tortola.

The one-stop, home shopping center and lumber yard recently opened Bell’s Café, offering customers new menu selections for breakfast and lunch, as well as musical entertainment at the Café’s water’s edge.

A Scotiabank ATM machine was added on the upper level for customer shopping convenience.
