With the opening of the Les Acacias gallery on November 19, there will now be a place to spend the day with the family in a change of scenery and reliving with nostalgia the expedition to the mall that everyone experienced as children. Several already existing establishments have joined the project, such as the Blue Sail Hotel, which opened last year with a capacity of 8 rooms and a restaurant serving French cuisine and Spanish tapas which will add evening service to its lunchtime service to confirm this desire for consistency between the commercial structures of the gallery, the work of which was launched in March 2022.

Highlight of the show, the 100 m concept store2 opposite the marina of Anse Marcel which offers a breathtaking setting.

This concept store offers high-end brands with ready-to-wear, perfume, candles, scents and body products in a space where you want to stroll for hours. Another pride of the gallery's management, who took it to heart to train young people from Saint-Martin, is the team of apprentices born of a partnership with the Académie des Métiers with the creation of a brand new diploma, the professional title of luxury option sales consultant. With 12 young people at the start of the adventure last September, 7 of them will join the stores full-time as sellers as soon as the gallery officially opens.
