People are rushing to the Fiji Showcase to take advantage of the ever growing specials available and to enjoy the entertainment.

On the second day of the event, people were gathering in numbers to make use of the services provided, all under one roof, with electrical items, clothes, jewellery, shoes, food, amusement rides and much more.

People are also taking advantage of the booths put up by Land Transport Authority, the Fiji National Provident Fund, Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority and others to get their fines paid or to get their joint FNPF and FRCA cards done.

Irene Singh at the LTA booth said many people were coming in to pay their Traffic Infringement Notice (TIN), while some came to renew their licences or learners permits.

“Some of the services we provide at the booth are renewal of licence, learners permits, computer tests, wheel tax payments and other information which people need on transport issues,” she said.

“We also have people who come to us and ask for some leniency with fines and other things but we tell them that LTA is a standardised body and we do not provide two different services at different places.

“We have a standard in place and we cannot be two ways about it, all we do is providing the best service to our customers.”

First-timers at showcase

It was a first time experience for a Wakaya family at the Fiji Showcase yesterday.

Mary Ralawa was at the event enjoying herself with her four children.

“It is a first time experience for my kids at the showcase,” Ms Ralawa said.

“We have just moved from Wakaya to Jittu Estate in Suva after the death of my husband.

“Our family had been in mourning so this is a way for my children to get over the grief and be able to move on.”

She said the kids loved the show and were having a great time.

Customers be aware

The Consumer Council of Fiji is once again urging members of the public to spend wisely at the event.

Council chief executive officer Premila Kumar said it was easy to be seduced by low-priced items but consumers needed to look at real bargains and not just items which were selling at reduced prices because they may be close to their expiry date, were of poor quality, and have no back-up service or spare parts.

“It is important that consumers are aware of their rights and responsibilities while trying to take advantage of the specials and bargains offered at the venue,” she said
