Jimmy’s Celebrates Grand Opening of Governor’s Harbour Store

Governor’s Harbour, Eleuthera – Giving a lively kick-start to the weekend, Eleuthera residents enjoyed great music and even better flavours of Jimmy’s Wines and Spirits as the brand celebrated the grand opening of it’s Governor’s Harbour location on Thursday, April 18.

Guests enjoyed a complimentary bar featuring Sands Beer, Triple B Malt, Cono Sur and Vina Maipo wines as well as signature cocktails made with Mount Gay Eclipse, Tito’s Vodka, Beefeater Gin, Disaronno and Disaronno Velvet, while the sounds of the New Vision Band pushed some to dance the night away.

The opening of the Governor’s Harbour location, across from CIBC First Caribbean, topped off a record year of openings for the brand in 2023 who now has eleven retail locations across four islands – a feat General Manager for Nassau and the Family Islands Gary Sands said should be celebrated.

“Jimmy’s has built a name for itself because we represent highly sought-after brands and sell them for great prices,” Sands said. “That, coupled with the importance we put on the customer’s in-store experience has resulted in all our locations thriving.”

“Central and South Eleuthera have welcomed us with open arms,” Jimmy’s Eleuthera Island Manager Jacqui Hall said, describing how receptive Eleutheran’s have been of the Jimmy’s brand.

“Everyone has been so excited and welcoming for our shop to open. The community has really welcomed us here. Trade customers are pleased we are here because Jimmy’s is the distributor for so many of the popular brands, including Sands Beer, Bud Light, Remy Martin, Tito’s Vodka, Fireball, Obikwa wine, Macallan whisky, Mount Gay rum, and Mionetto prosecco. The businesses also have a closer depot from which to restock. Before, they’d have to source it from our store across from the North Eleuthera airport or wait for the mailboat to come from Nassau. Now they have a much closer location to shop from or even schedule for us to deliver it for no charge.”

Grand opening attendees were able to take advantage of an instore sale while enjoying the opening festivities.

Last November, Jimmy’s held a soft opening for its Governors Harbour location, making it the second store on the island. Prior to this, the store’s North Eleuthera location, just across from the airport, serviced the whole island. Both locations service retail and business customers, deliveries, kegs, and are depot for the very important bottle return program.

Jimmy’s Sales Rep for Eleuthera, Anthony Johnson, said “for a number of years, my weekly run included visiting customers from Bannerman Town in the south to The Bluff in the north. As people from Eleuthera know, driving on our roads takes a toll on the body. With the addition of Jimmy’s store in Governor’s Harbour, they will be able to visit the customers in the south more frequently, even several times a week. That means those businesses should always have Sands, the truly Bahamian Beer.”

Manager of Retail Stores Phillippa Ferguson was also on hand for the momentous occasion on Thursday and said, “The customers in Eleuthera can expect the same great in-store experience at the two Jimmy’s on island.”

The Governors Harbour store is also part of Jimmy’s monthly wine-tasting series dubbed ‘Tasting of Wines from Around the World’. The series kicked off in April at six of the Jimmy’s locations. The next date in the tasting series is May 9; interested persons can follow Jimmy’s Wines & Spirits on social media or visit to learn more.
