LYNDHURST, NJ--(Marketwire - Apr 24, 2012) - DHS Holding Co. (PINKSHEETS: DHSM ) recently announced that the company has broken new ground on the development of the Cenote Falls Shopping Center in Belize. It is the intention of DHS Holding Co. to approach and make offers to sign popular retailers to the deal, including McDonald's, Abercrombie and Fitch, Nike and several other top businesses.
The first phase of negotiations is being handled by Scarinci Hollenbeck veteran Jay Surgent, who will be charged with acquiring top-rated retailers to supply their products and services at the new one-of-a-kind shopping center.
"I would like to go on record that all of us at DHS Holding Co. are honored and thrilled to have Jay V. Surgent, of the law firm Scarinci Hollenbeck, as lead attorney for our interests in Belize," said DHS Holding President Charlie Barrett. "As partner of one of the most prestigious law firms in New York/New Jersey area, Mr. Surgent is a key part of our team and will greatly help us implement and realize our ambitions of a strong and productive presence in Belize with our planned Casino/Hotel and Shopping Center. DHS Holding hopes and believes that this is just the beginning of a long and fruitful relationship with Mr. Surgent."
The shopping center, which will be built on a 40-acre parcel of land, is a welcomed initiative to economic professionals in Belize, who agree the investment will help further the country's economic and social goals.
"As more American companies discover the excellent investment opportunities abroad, Scarinci Hollenbeck, has positioned itself with attorneys who have the capability necessary to take advantage of these international business opportunities," said Scarinci Hollenbeck Managing Partner Donald Scarinci.
DHS CEO Mike Rohling noted that nearly $100 million crosses the border from Belize to Mexico due to a lack of retail center options in Belize. The project is expected to provide more opportunities to the citizens of Belize and fuel the local economy.
