Warehouse Limited’s $3million Cuvu Shopping Complex in Sigatoka, will open next month.

It is the first of a number of projects planned to uplift the image of the area.

Businessman Bobby Khan and his brother Irish, directors of Warehouse Limited, have more in store for the community, including a future complex to stimulate micro business for those wanting to become entrepreneurs.
Cuvu Shopping Complex

The Cuvu Shopping Complex, has a supermarket and eight other outlets which will. open next month.

Eight other floor space are taken by Western Union branch, Mega Hardware, a takeaway outlet, Tyre Centre and Blue Gas which will set up an auto gas station.

“Perhaps one of the biggest plus for the residents of Lovu is Mega Hardware which will give them much lower prices on hardware material.

“While building the complex we found hardware materials purchased from Sigatoka Town to be expensive.

“Even the residents around the area told us of this problem so Mega Hardware, which belongs to Iris is going to bring hardware tools and equipment that would be sold at a lower price than what is being sourced from Sigatoka Town.” Mr Khan said.

Mr Khan also said the complex took 15 months to complete with the weather slowing work.

Future Plans

Mr Khan outlined future plans for the Cuvu area which includes:

  • service station and
  • second complex which would house 19 more shops to be built beside the present complex.

The aim here is to make small shops for residents of the area who want to start up small micro businesses.

“We are looking at building these new additional developments towards the end of this year,

He said while they were residing in New Zealand, they were approached by the Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum to come back and invest in Fiji.

“The best thing perhaps out of that is that we now have dual citizenship which I feel all former residents of Fiji living overseas should take advantage of and come back and invest in Fiji.

“Government has been really helpful and that has made us work hard towards investing in Fiji.”

Mr Khan hopes the people of  Cuvu will appreciate this new development and come support the different businesses at the complex.
