Following the successes of its Shop and Share initiative, the TDC Business Centre and City Drug Store (Nevis) Limited have launched its school-based outreach programme.

Customers and clients can now purchase of a wide variety of school essentials (exercise books, backpacks, paper, crayons, scissors, pencils, pens, glue, markers, folders, erasers, as well as, arts and crafts supplies, etc.) and place them in specially constructed Yellow School Buses that are conveniently parked at the Point of Sale counters in the stores.

In exchange for their contribution, they will receive a ten percent (10) shoppers’ coupon towards their next purchase as a token of appreciation to the worthwhile cause.

At the end of each month until September, the educational materials will be sorted by staff and distributed to several children across the Federation based on their need with the aim of helping them to achieve success in the classroom.

Shop and Share started in 2015 and forms part of the annual Back to School promotional drive. It complements the TDC Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility activities which are specifically geared towards encouraging academic excellence.


With the Easter celebrations and Good Friday kite flying activities just around the corner, the TDC Home and Building Depot in St. Kitts is playing its part in making sure that the traditional art remains alive.

Twenty (20) children and their parents/guardians were on hand for the three (3) hour session facilitated by Mr. Curvis Jeffers.  The grand master of the art took participants on a historical journey, using original materials to make their own unique creations that would take to the skies on Good Friday.

Patrons also took the opportunity to learn, as they made their way through the store browsing or making purchases, with many expressing their delight and praising the activity.

The in-store workshop forms part of the company’s ongoing unique customer experience campaign that was started in 2018.  Plans are already afoot to have similar sessions for other TDC retail stores soon.
