A leading retailer for lights, furniture and solar products has opened its sixth outlet, since it started business nine years ago.

Al-Hamd’s Main Street Nadi store was officially opened on Saturday, by Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation Rosy Akbar.

Al-Hamd’s first store in Nadi was destroyed in a fire, last year.

Since then, the business has expanded its Al-Hamd Smart Living chain branches in Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, Ms Akbar said.

The Al-Hamd chain employs over 50 individuals.

Just last week, Al-Hamd Smart Living opened its fifth shop in Lautoka.

Managing director, Ashfaaq Khan said the business growth was a reflection of the country’s economic recovery.

“We are confident with the $80,000 investment, as the country points in the direction of economic growth,” he said.

“We had to open another shop for our loyal customers, so when we got the opportunity, we took it.”

Customers can expect a new range of lights and great promotions in the Nadi shop, Mr Khan said.

Al-Hamd Smart Living not only retained all staff members during COVID-19 pandemic, it created more employment opportunities.

The Nadi store employs three new staff members.

Mr Khan said there were plans to open the seventh shop in Nakasi.
