Super Cuts joins key tenants

A MAN who started working at a sugarcane farm at Seaqaqa is opening a new barber shop at the $30million Damodar City Centre in Suva.

And this would add to his growing business with two outlets already established at Vanua House in Suva and Mead Road in Nabua. At the official signing as a tenant at Damodar City Centre yesterday, Super Cuts proprietor Faizal Hussein said he believed the multi-million dollar complex was the place to be for business. Mr Hussein, who is originally from Labasa, started working at a sugarcane farm and later came to Suva in 1997 with $40 in his pocket for a bright future.

Over the years, he has worked his way to become a successful barber. Mr Hussein said one of the reasons for showing interest in setting up shop at the Laucala Bay complex was the car park space.

"Car parking is a big problem in Suva and I think Damodar City has planned their centre very well with the large space for parking," he said.

He said they planned to keep business in operation after 5pm to cater for workers.

He said Super Cuts' clientele list includes the President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau, Chief Justice Anthony Gates and other prominent business people.

Damodar City Centre manager Carmelita Price said they were happy with the new deal.

Ms Price said this would be in addition to a women's salon and beauty parlour that had already signed for a space.
