THE Grace Road Group (GRG) has been rapidly expanding its franchise over the years after facing a number of hurdles last year.

The company has expanded its European shoe outlet Bata with a new branch in Mid City mall in Suva.

According to the company, they were aware that most local people usually travelled overseas to buy quality items such as shoes and bags.

However, they revealed they wanted to change the notion and bring quality items to the people here.

“As part of that, we opened Missha (Korean cosmetic store), True Value (US hardware store) and Bata (European shoe brand store) in Fiji.

“Now we have four Bata outlets — Rups in Nakasi, Flagstaff in Suva, Mid City in Suva, TappooCity in Lautoka — and we are planning to open in Nadi end of this year,” the company stated. There has also been an increase in interest from the public in True Value Home Interior Services.

“We always try our best to bring the quality items and service to the people here.

“True Value provides the quality and best service which includes kitchen joinery, bathroom, door, furniture and tiles,” GRG stated. GRG has also expanded its services into the catering business with Grace Catering Service, which is one of its major businesses.

“Grace Catering provides an exceptional level of service and a distinctive variety of menu selection using fresh and sustainable ingredients. We design a custom menu from our vast menu selection which includes Fijian, Indian, Asian and Western food,” stated the company.
