New flea market for town

RB Patel Group Limited is planning on opening its first flea market today at its Harbour Point Supermarket in Lami.

The supermarket chain which opened the Lami branch in May, believes setting up a flea market at the carkpark will give operators a means to sell their items.

The flea market will feature operators selling old furniture, clothes, pot plants, books, magazines, cars and more.

"There are only two flea markets in Suva (ROC and Garden City)," said RB Patel's financial controller Vivek Rambisessar.

"We saw the need to have another one and give operators a means to sell their items. It will also provide shoppers to gain experience of our latest store in Lami."

The flea market is expected to be held every Saturday, beginning this weekend and operators from all over the country have been welcomed to take advantage and book their space.

"No fee is payable for the first two weeks after which we will determine a small fee to cover the cleaning costs and garbage removal," he said.

"The idea is to give back to the community. These are difficult times and such avenues to generate income always come in handy."
