I'm 99.99% sure I saw on one of the SXM news sites that Market Garden supermarket was also open, possibly for limited hours. Maybe someone can confirm that.
Obviously, there's still a long way to go, but I'm incredibly encouraged that in only three weeks after the storm hit, this many businesses have re-opened.

I learned from the property manager that we deal with that the villa we rent overlooking Happy Bay was not damaged and can be occupied. He also said that several restaurants in Grand Case have reopened.

OMG...may the list continue to grow speedily!!!! SXM has gone through storms before....and survived. Granted...none has ever been like that "Ir one".....(can't even stand hearing that name again), and our paradise island will survive again. Will take a while, but got a feeling the island will come back stronger than ever. Praying for all.

Yes! So glad to hear you are back in business! One of your faithful customers. Two days before the hurricane I remember you telling me to fill the tub with water which I did. Unfortunately the roof blew off the bathroom. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/duh.gif" alt="" />

this is all good, and it shows real effort to get back what was lost. However!!!! There are lots of folks stressed out due to owning and can not even get back to access damage to there property, or even try and start repairs... Lets pray the airport can get back to get flights in, or else all of this is good, but not for most... I am not even referring to vacationers, but we and many others have to get back, we can not take another vacation, and this is our home away from home... And frankly, all repairs will make the Island good again, not just resorts... I am glad there gusto to reopen stuff, but that stuff really can not survice without outsiders money... This is horrible for anyone invested in the Island... But considering the damage, which is huge, its a good sign...

There is one thing I am curious about when the restaurants reopen. Since there has been minimal electricity on the island. I am assuming refrigeration is scarce as is/was water and food. Do the restaurants now have a fresh supply of food? Is there now enough water available to drink and now has an abundance for sanitation purposes?

I had the same type of question. If the restaurants have food and water, what about all the residents that have nothing. Who is supporting the restaurants? If they are not working, where are they getting money?

There are a lot of places that have electric now. To my knowledge, FOOD is not scarce, neither is water. Super U has been advertising that they have fresh veggies, as well as plenty of frozen meat, and I believe that they have fresh meat now also. Now a lot of people may not have MONEY to buy food, etc., but I think there is plenty of food, if you can afford it. What is very scarce is building supplies.

Ok, I just didn't read much about cargo arriving. Also I guess food products could have been en-route to SXM but the hurricane just postponed delivery.

It is odd that anyone has stock or much of the stock that would be needed to match a menu. Alcohol isn't much of a problem, it's the meat and bulk supplies that come into the island. Containers are backed up at the docks. There are a few main suppliers that handle the food service industry, and I cannot remember the French supplier but Im sure they might have had a bit of looting done, as has Divicos damage and looting. Merchants Market being the main supplier on the Dutch side on Orange Grove was damaged and a statement from them included this as of Sept 25th. but no updates since...

"Our St Maarten facility was hit the hardest, followed by St Thomas. The Anguilla and St Croix warehouses fared well with minimal damage. Many customers businesses were damaged/destroyed and there are curfews still in place. We are assessing each island separately to determine what needs to be done at each location to rebuild/repair so that we can return our businesses to the pre-hurricane state.
The coming days will bring all of us more great challenges.
The Merchants Market Team will be here.
Still Standing."

Some places are open but I am sure very limited in what they have for the people who had to stay behind and keep moving to rebuild what they have lost, but I would not think up to standards that most of the travelers are usually accustomed to...

Which just throws another question out there that I have, They are announcing that Nov. 1st the IGY yacht club will be open for the Yacht season. There has been an announcement of 200 sunk and or submerged vessels are in the Lagoon. Just like anything to function here, there are a chain of events that are not even in place yet for it to be totally realized what it will take.

No one has mentioned the fact that during Luis, the Govt. didn't allow any incoming air or boat traffic that wasn't not registered as a resident or owned a business until 6 months after the storm...

From sxmbeachrental agency:

So far, 8 restaurants have opened in the Simpson Beach area.
Simpson Bay Yacht Club
Toppers
Pizza del Sol
Lebanese restaurant (by Travel Inn)
Buccaneers
Sale & Pepe
Pat's (in front of Boathouse)
Italian restaurant in Puerta del Sol Plaza (across
from Toppers)

Grocery Stores
Several of the smaller grocery stores are open.
Additionally, the grocery store on the Maho corner
is serving it's hot buffet again.

They initially canceled all villa reservation for October. November status was supposed to be determined on Sept 30th. They sent a note today that will be decided later today. Looks like our reservations for November will be right on the edge on whether it's a go/no go.

Are you sure about this as they had been closed or forced out of business earlier this year? Seems odd they would reopen now.

While the stores are not open yet I did receive a call from Caribbean Gems. If anyone needs service on existing purchases from them or would like to look into something, check their website, email them or call them 212-537-6529.

They hope to be back open and operational in November.

Thanks. I had no idea but this is what happens when people take information from one place, post it to another and do not verify it.

Thanks again.

PLEASE, Everyone, If you are going to post something, please verify it to be accurate.

Except for Carrefour, (which as far as I know has not reopened) most of the larger grocery stores are open, including Market Garden, Super U and Grand Marche.

And there are many restaurants in Simpson Bay which are open, which are not on that list.

Apologies if anything is incorrect, but, it was a status email from the company looking out for the villas we regularly rent from that includes property managers on site right now. Not sure how I verify info is any more correct than from a reputable company with people on the island.

..just goes to show you that your 'reputable company' maybe doesn't know that much about what is going on, on the island right now.

When it is cut and pasted from another site without verification, anything is possible. le bar de la mer has been gone for years as far as I know and I think an attempt to come back as Bistro de la mer was made. I do not think they survived but perhaps I am mistaken.

Along with Simpson Bay Resort, Atrium is also accepting people for non-tourist accommodations, citing no beach, etc.

I wonder if all the quick rebuilding was done with proper permits, the proper inspections and everything required?

I see Driftwood/Boat Bar has opened with what looks like a built structure. Again, I wonder if permits and proper building procedures where followed?

I did see where they changed their original edict, that even any REPAIRS had to have a building permit, which I guess is kind of a big deal in SXM, to get one. Theo was concerned about requiring a building permit, as was I. Now, the rule is that if you are just REPAIRING what was there and it was permitted, you don't have to have a building permit. Although truth be told, I really don't think the government at this stage has the resources to enforce this stuff at all.

Building a structure is not repairing a boat bar.

I am pretty sure it will be "any thing goes" until the government puts the hammer down. Kind of like Captain D's Rib Shack.

Not to rain on the parade......but...... who are the customers for all of these places that are "opening"??? The vast majority of the people on the island rely on the tourist industry for their income........and there are NO tourists. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

A lot of places, like Mark's, Pineapple Pete, etc., are a big percentage of locals there, who still may not have electric and/or water. From personal experience, if you don't have electric, etc, even cooking seems like a chore and it's nice to sit down and eat a meal prepared by someone else. Plus there are a lot of relief workers on island.

Agreed. Even when tourists ARE there, Mark's is probably 90 percent locals. They do a LOT of take-out business.

Yes, that is very true but if the local people are not working they won't have the money required to eat out. It is going to be very difficult for everyone there for quite some time. This is not a case of "build it,they will come".

So very true!! I have wondered also if they are not working, how will they afford to go to restaurants. Some don't even have homes. I would like to know down the road how many of these businesses are making ends meet.

I just read on Facebook BARCODE has reopened - don’t know if it’s been mentioned.......(and I’m feeling too lazy to read back over the long list to see if it was) but kudos since that area also seemed to be hard hit and slow to get help early on. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/handshake.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/handshake.gif" alt="" />

Good to see and surprised to see Rancho Del Sol open. I imagined they would get a walloping from the wind at their location. As weve learned storm surge is worse than wind in many cases.

That's pretty amazing. From the pics I saw weeks ago, the only thing left standing at Lee's was the lobster tank.

Marty still owns Marty's Go Dutch, formerly Marty Gyro in Simpson Bay next to Topper's. It is open, he is off island and supporting his staff on island by advertising on FB.

I just think it should be clear that many people/businesses chose NOT to have insurance. It is through the generosity of others that they are able to rebuild, pay employees and continue to operate and not from their own forward thinking or financial situation in all cases. Some even bragged about not having insurance.

Just curious. Many people that have homes on island are trying hard to be on island to check out their property's and a business owner is off island looking for funds to rebuild his business vs trying to get on island to inspect what happened to his business.

BZH Creperie in Oyster Pond is open. I think today is their first day open. Carole from L'Estaminet is managing the front of the house there now.

It is sooo wonderful to see some of our favorite places starting to reopen!!!! I pray that these businesses and restaurants can hold on for a year before most of the tourists start to return. With just about all the timeshares closed till the Summer...and major hotels not taking reservations, there will be a lot of competition for these places, with a limited number of tourists. Stay Strong SXM!!!!

My understanding is that Skipjacks will not rebuild.


That is really too bad. Skipjacks, at least in our opinion, is one of the best restaurants on the island for consistently good food, good service and reasonably realistic pricing and all this in a location that makes dining there a pleasure. I will personally miss it and feel bad for the displaced staff.

I could be mistaken, but a quick glimpse yesterday I thought I saw that nearly everything was gone behind the front facade which is intact. From the road it looks fine. Will try to get a closer look and a picture

Thanks, Elaine - will look forward to any updates you can provide. They employed a lot of staff there - it really will be too bad for all concerned if they choose not to reopen.

I'm guessing you're enjoying the weather there a lot more than the weather you left behind here.

This from Epicure Club post on FB:
Just a quick post to give you an update about the Mont Vernon area as a lovely follower sent me a message to tell me that she and her husband Tim (who was one of the chefs at Kontiki Beach) are opening a new Taï & Sushis restaurant smile

It's called "Chay's Thaï" and it's located right in front of Leader Price and it's open from Tuesday to Saturday for Lunch and dinner (Sunday too but only for dinner)

More infos at 06.90.76.28.28 to book or to place your order "to go"

It was later in the day when we passed, but I did see what looked like one of the fruit and veggie (and spice!) vendors packing up, but over by the fish market, not their normal spot. My favorite vendor posted she will be open Christmas day! Must be because of the return of the ships.

It was on Facebook, although I'm not sure exactly where right now. It may have been on Jeff Jhangiani's (DK Gems) page; he was one of the patron's in the photo.

Someone must have hacked my account. There's no way I used an apostrophe to make patron plural wink. I'd blame it on autocorrect, but I was typing on my laptop, not my phone.

Gone for good is what I have learned. No plans to relocate or reopen.

Why would that be your concern? In an emergency such as Irma, there probably isn't enough authorities to monitor the re-building. No different than the U.S.

Well, if they are not following the law and regulations perhaps they should not be rebuilding? Not at all the same as the US. There is also the chance that the structure/building would have to be torn down if not properly permitted and inspected.

I didn't make the rules/laws, I just asked if the ones in place were being followed.

The Hideaway at LaVista opened yesterday. Andrea said that it is only open for breakfast and lunch now. She hopes she can open for dinner this weekend or next.

I am so glad we bought at LaVista. Arrive at LVB Feb.3. Damage was quickly repaired and LaVista being worked on. None of the bureaucratic BS going on at corporate owned resorts. Andrea and staff have done a wonderful job. I'm sure there will be a SMF in the future, but I'm sure it will be reasonable. Great job.

We are at LaVista now and are so happy we decided to come, LaVista is what time shares should be!!
4 ships in Phillipsburg today and we have never seen so many umbrellas and tourist on the beach, this will be the replacement for Orient for a while. Great vibe at least on the Boardwalk.

Any word on Pedro’s rebuilding? It wouldn’t be the same without Pedro’s, after all they’ve been there since before Club O and survived so many hurricanes.

Lucky Stables at Seaside Nature Park has reopened. There is a little blurb in the Daily Herald today, talking about how the horses survived Irma by the owners just letting them range within their 30 acre paddock. Other than salt irritation of their eyes, they were unharmed. Animals have ways of surviving which are amazing..

As the list of things that are open grows it appears that on the Dutch side there are more than enough places to eat but a disproportionate number of places to stay, most of the restaurants we visited so far were not full by any means, I am sure some will choose to not open too quickly only to struggle with the fewer visitors. That said we have had great food and service on our first week. Palms, Toppers, Sale & Pepe and Izi so far.

They posted this list on Facebook 22 hours ago, so I assume the list is updated. Maybe the article itself was created in October...

Not sure if it has been reported before but we ate at Piazza Pascal last night which according to Donna was their second night being open to the public, they have been supplying the French police and military for a while with take out. As always very good food.
