More joblessness hit Linden as Banks DIH closes restaurant
Banks DIH Arvida Qik Serv Restaurant in Linden has closed its doors some 15 years after it was declared open in the mining town.
The closure of the restaurant has caused 15 persons, including two supervisors, to now be on the breadline.
Business for Banks grew rapidly necessitating the erection of a bond/warehouse in 1993 in order to be of better service to the community which then requested that Banks DIH Limited offer the services of a fast food restaurant.
A feasibility study was undertaken by the management of the Demico Division and on July 24, 1994, and the company’s Chairman Clifford Reis, along with Kenneth De Abreu and other senior executives, officially opened the Arvida Qik Serv Restaurant.
Kaieteur News was unable to ascertain the reason for this recent decision to close the doors of the restaurant yesterday but the manager of the Linden branch has confirmed the closure.
The public relations officer claimed that he was unaware of the closure and contended that the newspaper had more information than him.
