In The Beginning
In 1954, Cecil Kenrick Greaves opened a grocery wholesale outlet on Upper Bay Street in Kingstown, St. Vincent employing a total of six workers. Six years later in 1961, Sunrise Bakery Co. Ltd. was opened in Arnos Vale, St. Vincent, introducing modern baking technologies to St. Vincent and the Grenadines. In the early 1970’s the grocery wholesale business on Upper Bay Street was converted into a mini-mart/wholesale and soon after, the supermarket trade was incorporated into the bakery at Arnos Vale.
Having firmly established the supermarket at Arnos Vale, Mr. Greaves expanded his real estate holdings on Upper Bay Street and in December of 1979, the C K Greaves & Co. Ltd. Supermarket in Kingstown was opened. Both supermarkets have been recently renovated and boast the most up-to-date equipment in the supermarket business.
In June 2012 a third location was opened in Pembroke on the Leeward side of the island. Today Mr. Greaves children and grand children run the business and are divided among the three locations.
