The branch is located in the building next to the uptown supermarket in Clifton.

A ceremony was held on Monday afternoon, with blessing of the building by Father Andrew of the Union Island catholic church, followed by the cutting of the ribbon by Shirley Lulley, wife of the late founder of the business, Ross Lulley, and son Mark Lulley CEO of the company.

The company was established by Ross lulley who started the business on Bequia some 60 years ago. Witnessing the ceremony were fishermen from Union Island, the surrounding Grenadine islands, close friends, family and the manager for Bequia branch Cascita Hazell and her husband Wilfred, sales manger Trevor Morgan and Galia Lulley, manager of the St. Vincent branch.

According to Mark lulley, the idea of a branch in Union was born after a family visit to Union Island where they witnessed the lack of fishing tackle at affordable prices in the lower Grenadines. They had also listened to the fishermen who journeyed to Bequia and St. Vincent to make purchases, complaining for many years.

Mark said that his dad would have been happy to see the opening of the new branch in Union Island since he was always interested in the livlihood of the fishermen.

The proceedings were followed by cocktails and music.

Mark Lulley thanked all for the support in making this a reality, and advised Vincentians to keep looking and listening for more from lulley’s fishing supplies.
