Gosling’s temporarily close flagship shop
Gosling’s has temporarily closed its flagship retail shop in the Victoria Block, on the corner of Front Street and Queen Street.
It is expected to reopen in late April after renovations, including work to address occasional floods in the basement that are caused by king tides and regular spring tides.
A pop-up shop is planned for the space at 95 Front Street, below Bolero Restaurant. This is to open in the middle of the month.
Gosling’s main shop has had minimal changes since the 1990s. Now it is in line for extensive renovations.
Nancy Gosling, president of Gosling Brothers Ltd, the parent company of Gosling’s Ltd, said: “Over the last decade, we have seen an increasing number of incidents of occasional king and regular spring tides that have caused inconvenient floods in our basement.
“We saw this as a good time to properly deal with this matter as well as completely renovate our retail shop floor area, a space that has minimal changes since the 1990s. An update is in keeping with the increased efforts of the BTA attracting visitors to our island.”
The Gosling’s pop-up shop will allow the company to continue to supply wines and spirits, including Gosling’s Black Seal Rum, to continue its sales of duty free packages to cruise ship passengers, and offer special sales on excess and end-of-line inventory.
