Christmas street vending gets green light*


San Fernando vendors have been given the all-clear to sell on High Street by mayor Junia Regrello.

Regrello met with vendors and the police on Wednesday to discuss this issue and the concerns raised by some business owners over vendors selling on the streets.

He said that vendors will be given four days for the week to ply their trade this Christmas season.

“This is a very difficult time for people. I know street vending is illegal but we want to create a win-win situation for everyone. They do create and bring business into the city which will also benefit other businesses. They are not stealing and this agreement will be for the San Fernandian vendors who have been selling for years,” said Regrello.
