Santiago Castillo Limited to close Bottom Dalla Supermarket at end of August; blames ‘unfair competition’

Posted: Monday, August 7, 2023. 2:37 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Low-cost Belize City supermarket Bottom Dalla, opened 18 years ago, will close its doors on August 31, owner Santiago Castillo Limited has announced.

Via social media, the Castillo statement issued this morning says higher costs and unfair competition, exacerbated by “proposed changes in market conditions” (likely referring to the profit cap on basic food items recently introduced by the Government) made the owners decide to close and focus on other businesses.

The Castillo group says most employees of the store will be moved to other areas, and thanks them and customers for their service and patronage in its time in operation.

“Many of you made bottom $ your store from the day it opened its doors. To all of you, thank you, thank you, thank you… We value your business and appreciate your continuous support [of] this Belizean-owned business.”

The Castillo Group says it will continue to operate Save-U Supermarket at the Belcan Plaza and Orange Walk Town’s People’s Store, in addition to its primary import business and Angelus Press on Queen Street.

Bottom Dalla joins Augusto Quan Limited and Karl H. Menzies Company Limited last year as major names to disappear from the City’s business district while Smiling Meats on New Road recently changed ownership.
