Would You Like To Be A Vendor In Dockyard?

November 19, 2018

Small businesses are being given the chance to take advantage of Bermuda’s busiest tourism hub by becoming a vendor at Dockyard.

West End Development Corporation [WEDCO] is inviting applications for outdoor vendors for the 2019 summer season as well as the 2019/2020 winter season.

“It is a great opportunity, especially for a small business,” said Stephanie Rodill, the Marketing and Events Manager at WEDCO. “Our experience shows that visitors love the items Bermudian vendors sell and the direct interaction with local entrepreneurs, which adds another dimension to the Dockyard experience.”

This year, vendors included Duch Pops, 9 Parishes, Positive Energy, Churchill’s Ltd, Sunset Studio, Top Dog and Bermuda Fudge Co. set up their stalls in between the Gazebos near the ferry stop.

Ms Rodill added: “Six concrete vendor pads are available, complete with electricity and water access. We are really looking forward to seeing what local entrepreneurs have to offer.”

Bermuda was expected to receive 180 cruise ship calls this year bringing approximately 470,000 passengers — amounting to 19 more cruise ship calls and 53,500 more passengers in 2018 over 2017.

More information and application forms are available at dockyardbermuda.com/wedco/forms-applications and completed applications should be sent to marketing@wedco.bm or delivered to the WEDCO offices at the Clocktower Mall between 8.30am and 4pm. The deadline is Friday, January 11, 2019.

    With Payroll Tax becoming Income Tax I will not be starting any business in Bermuda anytime soon.

    I am thinking of driving a taxi from 6pm to 6 am. Late night taxis are impossible to find and I believe taxi drivers have some form of Income Tax relief

    Perhaps WEDCO can explain why they’re entitled to 10% of the merchant’s profits ON TOP of the rental fees? So the more a merchant makes, the more WEDCO takes? Thanks, but no thanks.
