Update: 12:43PM MORRIS Hedstrom supermarket closed its branch in Naulu to open another one in the same area but on a larger scale.
Carpenters (South Pacific) Limited executive director Daniel Whippy said they were confident of the opening of their complex at 10 Miles, near the Kings Road, this morning because of the capacity and large population.
"The previous MH store is restricted in size and I think the landlord didn't want to develop the property. Here, it is a complex and it has a number of small shops and will add to the customer offer," Mr Whippy said.
He said they would develop the previous MH store to Carpenters Hardware.
He said they also had plans to open new outlets and develop their branches in Nadi and Suva.
