RE: I posted above - Don't be Late

I gave them ONE Star. - NOT 3 stars! It's not possible to give them ZERO stars. For the record, I'm submitting this paragraph with 1 star for each category. We'll see what appears... It says that I have to post at least 200 characters so here goes

Don't Be Late- The Staff Has No Sympathy

Having reviewed their list of grocery items online, I was pleased, back pack ready to fill, and set out on foot from Capt Morgan's Retreat to Mata Grande Grocery Belize today. After walking the 3 or so miles in the tropical heat, I was pleased to think that I would be able to get seafood- which is difficult to obtain outside of San Pedro. Their website doesn't list hours but I thought that surely they'd be open until 5 PM. I arrived at 5:05 PM. Imagine

my surprise when your staff of 3 came tearing out of the driveway on a golf cart- laughing and waving "We just closed! SOR-REEE!" I called out "But I just walked from Capt Morgan's!" Slight hesitation on the gas pedal- then they floored it out of there, leaving me dumbstruck-- a 64-year-old lady visitor traveling alone. Missed it by 5 minutes! I turned around and mentally prepared myself for my empty handed return trip. No problem. Have a good evening!
