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.
