Jaccar Organic & Natural Sorbet is for sale in Christiansted. Any feedback on them? Owner wants to retire, they seem to have good Yelp and Trip Adviser reviews, but I don't always trust those.

You may have already seen this article - they too worked for several years for others before opening up their own business:

Great info. very nice article, Jezz

PODS

We need a PODS franchise, so people can pack their own and ship back and forth to the states.

I would love to park a pod in my driveway in FL next month, pack it at my leisure, have it delivered to Medley for shipping to STX, then unpack it here.

I could probably do that, not sure, but then I would have to ship the empty pod back to FL.

Just had an idea.....Is anyone leaving late June and would like to pack a pod and ship it to the states? Maybe that would work for both of us.

If anyone knows of a similar service that already exists, please let me know.

Juanita

Yes, I think that's how it works, but since we don't have a franchise here you would need to get it back to it's original "home", I think. I went to their website and they wouldn't accept STX as a destination.

A pod franchise sounds like a great idea!

More than a few people I know here have just bought a 20' container in the states filled it, usually with construction project materials, and after shipping and unloading it here they have sold it at little or no loss of money -- although it sometimes took a few weeks to sell.

That was real common to do after Hurricane Marilyn. I have several friends in STX that bought Hovensa containers and use them for workshops/storage. I know that there seem to be a lot of them over there still for sale in different conditions....

With the 20' shipping container. How does it work to ship it from the states say FL to STX? Any good recommendations on that service? Costs associated? Thanks!

Getting back to original post..really clean grocery stores that offer actual Fresh Fuit (Peaches, for one) and a variety of newer products.
Heading to FL in May. Can't wait to go to a grocery store.
For starters!:@)
