PEOPLE living in and near Nabua in Suva have an added shopping feature with the soft opening of the newest supermarket in the area.

Charan Jeath Singh group of companies has opened the doors of its second supermarket — CJS Supermarket — an added feature under its new three-storey complex — Digicel House — in Nabua.

The supermarket along with the complex is part of the latest multi-million dollar development and venture under the group owned by Labasa business mogul Charan Jeath Singh.

As of yesterday, staff members of the supermarket were busy at work arranging new stocks and adding finishing touches to the facility.

But this did not stop a few customers who were among the first to get a glimpse and try out the supermarket.

According to supermarket owner Mr Singh, the supermarket along with the complex added a new shopping environment in Nabua along with its competitive prices and modern facilities.

"This is the second supermarket. Our first one is in Labasa that's operated under the name of Nambawan Supermarket and we will of course rebrand it to the same name as CJS Supermarket," Mr Singh.

"We have been in the supermarket business for the past 30 years, but this is a new experience for us that we are providing to the Nabua area."

While it was a low key opening, the occasion was no ordinary one as it coincided with Mr Singh's wedding anniversary.

"It is a special day too for me and my wife as we celebrate our 31 years of marriage. So it's a double celebration," he said.

With 70 new staff members to the supermarket, Mr Singh said they expected to be fully operational by the end of the week.

Meanwhile, Mr Singh said the entire complex was fully occupied whereby tenants on the ground floor had moved in.

"Then we have also got the food court where we have got a new tenant and more are to move in by the end of the week," he said.

"Digicel, who is leasing the top floor, will move in soon."

Mr Singh said the investment was estimated at $8.5 million with other planned investments under the group in the pipeline.
