RESIDENTS of Lautoka City yesterday enjoyed discounts on mobile phones and gadgets from Vodafone Fiji.

People lined up for hours at the Girmit Centre to take advantage of the sale.

The one-day clearance sale in Lautoka and Labasa's Civic Centre drew hundreds of people who wanted to take advantage of the low prices.

"The sales come after the success of the Mega Clearance Sale at Tamavua last month," said Vodafone's chief marketing officer Sanjeewa Perera.

"Our aim is to clear our warehouse and prepare for the new stock of phones and devices that are compatible with our latest 4G network.

"We are overwhelmed by the turnout of the customers."

People from as far as Nadi, Ba and Sigatoka also came to the Sugar City for the clearance sale.

Sigatoka resident Ronil Kumar said he was alerted of the sale via text message from the mobile company.

"We received a text message on Friday and were really excited," he said.

"When we arrived, the Samsung phone I was after finished as the sale was on first come first serve basis.

"But I got two other phones that were also available at the sale."
