Albert Lym

A son of Westmoreland, Jamaica, Albert “Docky” Lym moved to Kingston when he was still a schoolboy. After completing primary school, he entered the workforce by joining Abe Brimmon Haberdashery on bustling Beckford Street. Intrigued by the dynamics of the retail and wholesale industry, he continued to hone his sales skills in the years to follow at Hannah’s Wholesale, Cecil D. Cordova Distributors, and T. Geddes Grant Ltd. Respectively, even donning his salesman hat on weekends while at Hannah’s Wholesale to sell ready-to-wear shirts on commission. It was while he was at Geddes Grant, however, that he earned his accolades as a top producer known for going toe-to-toe in the sales arena with competing food distribution giants. In the 1960s, and by now a family man, Docky ventured into entrepreneurship by opening Mini Mart in the Manor Park area. Ten years later, however, amid Jamaica’s shifting socio-political landscape, he would leave with his family for Toronto, Canada. In the late 1980s, the Lyms returned home and reestablished their foothold in the island’s grocery industry by acquiring Brooklyn Supermarket on Constant Spring Road, under the family-owned ATNACRA Ltd. Today, the Brooklyn Supermarket brand serves its customers through its two central locations, and remains under the direction and watchful eye of its ever-present founder and chairman.
