Newworld has plans to rebrand three other outlets under the IGA franchise come next year.

There are also plans to open a few more new outlets in the latter part of 2015.

This has been confirmed by Newworld chief executive, Anil Patel.

“We have already rebranded three other Newworld to Newworld IGA, one in Lautoka, Voutalevu in Nadi and Nakasi,” he said.

“The consumer can expect more IGA stores located in their township and also a lot more product lines on the shelves.”

Mr Patel made these comments as the Newworld IGA outlet in Damodar City, Suva, which was the first under the franchise, marked its first anniversary on Friday.

In terms of business at Damodar City, Mr Patel said it had progressed and was received-well by the consumers.

“Consumers have received IGA formats very positively, because of the wide range of products on offer, customer service and convenient layout of the stores,” he said.

“With our opening of four new IGA stores, customers have reacted well and we have seen a wider section of the market taking advantage of the wide range of products on offer.”

In terms of investment, Mr Patel confirmed there were plans.

“We have a lot more work to be done in terms of refurbishing our current stores and opening few more,” he said.
