Guam - The ribbon was cut signifying the official grand opening of the new Payless Supermarket in Sumay. It is the 8th store in the chain of markets which will serve southern residents from Agat, Santa Rita, Talofofo, Umatac and Merizo.

Payless Markets executive vice president Kathy Sgro is looking forward to being a good neighbor and be a part of the movement to bring business to the once thriving village of Sumay. "It was a village that was a an important economic hub before the war and we hope to be able to help revitalize that in having more employees be employed from the south in the store," she said.  

The new 12,000 square foot store offers more than 20,000 assorted items, provides 340 feet of fresh produce, dairy, meat, and seafood and will also add a rotisserie section to the store. The Sumay Payless is open from 6 am to midnight.
