Island Grocery owner shares joy, heartbreak of delivering in pandemic

On Thursday, April 2, 2020, Dee Hutchinson interviewed the innovative Alva Preville from Island Grocery on her 'DEE is for Digital' live-streamed show via Digicel St Lucia's Facebook page.

Dee's description of the Hero of the Week reads: "There are so many wonderful and inspiring stories being shared during the COVID-19 pandemic that they are too good not to be shared.

Today we have the absolute pleasure of interviewing Alva Preville – from Island Grocery – and our knight in shining armour.

Tune in to hear how he is providing options for home-delivered meals, groceries, and medications."

Preville shares with Dee how he is heartbroken that the 24-hour curfew imposed on the island has put the company's delivery efforts on pause but shares how fulfiling the facial expressions of people who are able to receive essentials - including the elderly and the disabled - without having to venture out to face the threat of catching the virus, has been.

Check out the interview above and make sure to catch Dee is For Digital as she brings various masterclasses on business and wellness to the St Lucian public as we adjust to the new normal in the time of the pandemic.
