Established in 1910 by Herbert Harry Vivian Whitchurch, hence the name H.H.V. Whitchurch & Co. Ltd., Whitchurch has grown from being insurance and ships’ agents into a multifaceted and dynamic company. We employ over 220 Dominicans and are proud of our service to our country. Whitchurch IGA Supercentre - from humble beginnings to proud achievementsIn 1910, Whitchurch operated a grocery shop called The Paz on Drury Lane and also a hotel known as Hotel De Paz, facing what is now the Carib Cinema. In 1961, fire destroyed the entire block, including the business and other businesses occupying the area. A few days later, the company purchased fro L. Rose and Company the building which was then a lime warehouse, and set up the office on top floor and a shop downstairs. In 1975, the company opened the Supercentre and had it blessed by Father Charles on December 11 that same year. From then on the company undertook some upgrading, and in 1984, the top floor of the building was constructed to accommodate a number of services including Shipping and Insurance. In 1996, it carried out major upgrading, renovating, updating and remodelling of the Supercentre. Whitchurch Supermarket became the IGA Supercentre in 1996. IGA (International Grocery's Alliance) had observed that the Supermarket had achieved and maintained a high level standard and welcomed Whitchurch Supermarket into its worldwide network. The Company's relationship with IGA, said Managing Director Gerry Aird, is a support arrangement. The Company does not receive financial assistance, but benefits by receiving good prices, and regular supplies through their members.The prestigious IGA Supercentre features Dominica's first and only in-store Deli and Bakery which was opened on December 12, 1996. This facility offers customers an extraordinary variety of fresh wholesome local products as well as products from the Caribbean and the world. Among the Deli's specials are the famous chicken Drummettes and Potato Wedges and fresh pizzas. In fact, the Deli has a wide variety of delicious snacks, breads and cakes for everybody.Store Manager Brent Evans told The Chronicle that it is being heavily patronised especially for the lunch periods during which it provides take-away meals. He also said that the Deli has proven to be a wonderful facility for more and more Dominicans. Ten persons are currently employed on a shift system at the Deli which is opened from 8 am to 7 pm Mondays to Thursdays, and 8 am to 8 pm Fridays and Saturdays.On December 12th, 2005, Whitchurch IGA Supercentre celebrates 30 years in the business. Acclaimed for always buying and selling local amongst its many imported products, the Supercentre has become renowned for offering a wide range of products at competitive prices as well as fresh produce of good quality
