About 500 people will be employed at the Tappoo complex in Lautoka City when it is fully operational.

These were the words of Tappoo executive director, Mahendra Tappoo, after a pooja held yesterday, which was attended by family members and the Minister for Local Government Parveen Bala.

Tappoo’s department store will be open for business at the end of the month.

Of the 27 tenants who will occupy the building, Life Cinema was the first to open its doors with the first movie screening last Friday.

“Building is completed and this is what the people of Lautoka have been waiting for as it is modern building with different outlets built with a modern theme,” Mr Tappoo said.

“Life Cinema has led the way with its modern set up including the cinemas and this will flow through all the outlets at Tappoo City in Lautoka.

“Whenever Tappoo builds, we make sure it is quality and this could be seen with Tappoo Suva.

“Both complexes are five-star shopping malls, but some of the tenancies in Lautoka are left to complete works.

“Our department store will open at the end of this month and apart from that we will have food courts, commercial offices, supermarket and different specialist stores.

“All our outlets have been taken up by different companies.”

Standout feature of the complex is the VIP lounge for neighbouring Churchill Park. Mr Tappoo said works were almost complete.
