Slow Christmas for city shops

This means a less stressful day for shops throughout the nation’s capital.

Loop PNG visited major shops like RH Hypermart and Stop N Shop, which were open today.

It was a normal Sunday for them, with less customers and was less hectic than the two previous days.

According to a shop assistant at Stop N Shop, there was a little bit of a crowd in the morning but it had all cleared out.

The two previous days however, were the busiest, they confirmed.

Long queues for crazy Christmas specials

Goods like rice, bread, lamb flaps, cartons of soft drinks and ham are selling fast at the shops, with just two days left before Christmas.

Loop PNG visited RH Hypermart, Stop N Shop, Brian Bell and TST Supermarket and witnessed a flood of shoppers in long queues at counters.

Almost all food stuff are on specials as well as white goods, toys and Christmas decorations.

Loop PNG witnessed 100 bags of 10kg rice get sold out within a minute!

The customers had to wait in line to collect the rice bags straight from the container at the back of the shop.

Residents’ mad rush two days before Christmas

Even the PMVs were packed with passengers traveling to their villages along the Magi and Hiritano highways.

Loop PNG caught up with shoppers rushing to make it home on time for Christmas.

People were seen buying food stuff and presents to share with family, friends and loved ones.

Shops like RH Hypermarket, Stop N Shop and TST Supermarket have all seen an increase in customers this week.

For this week alone, they have had 3000 to 7000 customers every day.

CPL announced K7.35 million profit

Chairman Mahesh Patel when commenting on the announcement said 2015 has been another tough year for the company.

“Our revenue growth started well in the first half, but was stifled in the second half due to the fire at Waigani Central, our largest volume outlet.

“Our new growth plans which incurred increased expenses were severely impacted due to the reduced volume from Waigani, a serious market slow-down and reduced consumer spending in the second half.”

Shelves still void of bulb onions

LOOP PNG visited several major supermarkets today still with empty shelves and disappointed customers.

These include the CPL’s Stop N Shop, Food World and RH Supermarkets.

Central Waigani Stop N Shop Assistant Manager Julius Koriu said the stock they brought in last week lasted less than a week.

He says CPL buys onions from local farmers in Simbu Province and has it transported to Port Moresby via PNG Air.

Boroko Food World ran out of onions last Wednesday, their stock lasting only a day also from local producers.
