In 1931, the Bata company exported 600 pairs of shoes to the island, after a two-year recession, exports resumed in 1934 (5,000 pairs), and Bata shoes gained a strong position on the local market. In 1937, 1 Bata store was in operation there, 2 stores in 1947. In the following years, the corporate business on the island of Saint Lucia continued (1992 — Bata St. Lucia, Castries).
