    Banco Santa Cruz New Headquarters

    100% this. Last month they changed their Bancanet (both for business and personal banking) and it was a mess in terms of communication and customer service. I'm rethinking my options on keeping with them.

    Santo Domingo Game

    Please note: this season, Licey online ticketing system flopped and they're doing it manually. You have to go to the stadium and buy it from them. Go early as you mentioned, @Bananas1, because it's a chaos (especially on those dates because you're already in the middle of the season and when...

    Popeyes chicken

    KFC is a mastodon in the country. So far, their growth has been with low prices and affordable specials (with average meals around 7-15USD) since post-covid (they were one of the few franchises that didn't struggle during covid times) ... but their quality has been a downturn for many Dominicans...

    Sirena: First Dominican Stores with Auto Checkout

    That's why they're deploying this only in upscale areas in Santo Domingo (where security concerns aren't of a issue). As they mentioned, the system only works at Lope de Vega and soon, Churchill Ave. It's the same with their delivery service. Not all sirena and Pola stores have their dedicated...

    Jumbo in San Francisco de Macorís

    For example, Almacenes Unidos opened in Punta Cana days ago. Its first store outside of Santo Domingo. Before that, people in Punta Cana used to drive 5-6 hours to SDQ just to buy things from that specific store. That's, I guess, is progress.

    Marbete 2022

    The "Marbete Season" as I call it, usually begins from Oct 15-18th onwards Jan. This year is kinda weird. They haven't announced anything on newspapers and the rest of the media. DGII is usually very disciplined promoting the season days prior the renewal process. Stay tuned next week or the 15th.
