New grocery-delivery service offers free shipping to hotels, homes in Jamaica
Published on February 20, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

HEMPSTEAD, USA -- Long Island-based Sam's Caribbean Marketplace has announced the launch of Sam's Bread and Butter Express, a service that sells and delivers groceries throughout the Caribbean island of Jamaica.

The retailer describes the new venture as "a low-cost service that allows Jamaica-bound travelers and Jamaicans overseas to shop for groceries and have them delivered anywhere on the island within a day or two."

The product offering ranges from traditional Jamaican fare such as Cock Soup, jerk seasonings and Red Stripe Beer, to corn flakes, bottled water, diapers and meat.

Safe and Convenient

"We devised a convenient, reliable and safe service for anyone worldwide to order and ship products to any place in Jamaica. Even to places with no street address," said Andrew Morris, president of Sam's Caribbean Marketplace.

"Sam's Bread and Butter Express allows visitors to experience the authentic taste of Jamaica while paying local prices," Morris explained.

"It's also a nice convenience for overseas-based Jamaicans who support aging and homebound relatives or children on the island. For them, our door-to-door grocery delivery service is a great blessing," he added.

Free Shipping

The new service rolls out with an offer of free shipping on orders over $50. Customers can schedule delivery for anytime this year, but they must place their order by Friday, February 28, 2014.
