Saint Vincent

In 1932, the Bata company exported 300 pairs of shoes to the island, after a three-year recession, exports resumed in 1936 (4,000 pairs), and Bata shoes gained a strong position on the local market. In 1937, 1 Bata store was in operation there, and, in 1947, the number was the same. In the following years, the corporate business on the island of Saint Vincent continued (1992 – Bata St. Vincent, Kingstown).
