Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley says the opening of multimillion Kooyman mega store at Kendall Hill, Christ Church signals there is confidence in the future of Barbados.
She welcomed the mega store and credited the work of local contractors for delivery of the project on time.
Ground was broken on the site some 49 weeks ago.
Over 100 Barbadians have found employment there.
Chief Executive Officer of Kooyman Holding International, Herbert van de Woude says the mega store is the largest investment for the company.
He adds Kooyman gives Barbados a home improvement store that is unique in its size and store concept.
