Vinod Patel & Company Limited has further lifted Sigatoka town’s profile with the opening of its Home & Living store yesterday.

This is the fifth store of the Home & Living brand and the opening was officiated by Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation Rosy Akbar.

General manager of Home and Living, Sanjeev Mudaliar, said: “The whole idea of Vinod Patel moving into the consumer goods hire purchase business is to have  traffic in all towns in Fiji.

“We started off with Centrepoint, then we had Labasa, then we had Namotomoto, and about four weeks ago we had Nausori. So this is our fifth one.

“It coincides with a good day because there is another major building opening here along with the market complex.”

More expansion

Mr Mudaliar added: “We want to continue to expand the store size as we have just started off here, we will crawl first before we are able to run.

“In terms of attracting customers we hope to do that through outdoor broadcast, through the presence of senior managers and to be hands on in the store.”

“Our new Lautoka store will be ready in about eight weeks time, it is a brand new store as we have invested $3 million to $4 million building that store.

“So our next stop is Lautoka where we are looking forward to our new Home and Living and Hardware store in one complex,” Mr Mudaliar added.

Home and Living is now looking into opportunities in Ba area to open a grand store in the future.

The new store in Lautoka is located opposite the market in the city at the end of Naviti Street.
