Shops in the Capital City will this year be restricted to “in store Suva on Sale” following the partial shutdown of the Stinson Parade Bridge and the Vatuwaqa Bridge.

The shutdown which began last night is to allow Fiji Roads Authority to carry out detailed structural inspections to the two bridges.

Suva Retailers Association president Himmat Lodhia said the restrictions during the Suva on Sale on October 13-20 follows the last minute withdrawal of permit by Suva City Council and the Fiji Police force due to partial shutdown of the two bridges.

“The Board of Suva Retailers Association regrets the changes due to unforeseen emergencies, beyond the control of the committee,” Lodhia said.

Lodhia stall fees will be refunded to all those who have paid.
