The P Meghji group of companies continues to expand its presence in the central division with the upcoming opening of its supermarket in the northern division.
The company opened its new outlet at Ratu Sukuna Rd in Nasese, Suva yesterday.
The executive director of the P Meghji Group of Companies, Romit Meghji, said they had moved their existing outlet to this new location.
Mr. Meghji said it was a new store concept with an investment of half a million dollars with a liquor store featuring food retailed by the company.
According to Mr. Meghji, the location was good for the business, they believe that people did not want to go out of town to shop due to traffic jams and therefore the store in the residential area would be a benefit for the residents .
The company plans to open its Namadi Heights supermarket around mid-July in addition to its drink-and-drive store.
Mr Meghji said they were still in the tourism industry and with the reopening of borders and travel they had been very busy.
The only issue for the company has been food supply and logistics due to shipping delays which are expected to continue for some time.
With shipping and fuel costs rising, Meghji said the option was to pass the cost on to consumers.
