The Tortola Pier Park in Road Town partially reopened today following weeks of closure due to hurricanes Irma and Maria.
Leasing and Marketing Manager at the pier park Meslyn Allan said storeowners at the facility were eagerly waiting to recommence operations.
“We are sending a clear message to our customers, partners, and shareholders that yes Tortola Pier Park and the BVI has been affected by two major hurricanes but our story does not end there.”
“We are diligently working closely with the Government of the Virgin Islands and the BVI Ports Authority to ensure a speedy restoration of the facility,” she added.
Pier park management, in the meantime, said operations will continue at the facility with a Christmas celebration on December 22 and 23.
“The Christmas event will serve as a return of the popular movie night which will be a part of a wider Christmas shopping and dining campaign.”
Operations at the government-owned facility were halted first by Hurricane Irma on September 6. The park then took another blow from looters who ransacked several businesses on the property.
It was not specified when the facility will fully reopen.
