The introduction of a new footwear brand to Jack’s of Fiji product range has created job opportunities, with 12 new positions already added at their retail shop in Pier Street, Suva.
Jack’s of Fiji director Nikul Khatri said the move doesn’t just help the local economy grow but also ties into Jack’s promise to offer opportunities in the community.
Speaking at the launch of the Bata footwear products on Friday, Khatri said the arrival of the renowned brand in Jack’s stores marks a big step, showing the company’s strong commitment to providing great products and experiences for its valued customers.
“The partnership between Jack’s of Fiji and Bata means a significant investment that puts the Bata brand in the spotlight in Fiji.”
Khatri said what sets Bata apart in Fiji’s competitive footwear world is its impressive blend of global trends and local preferences.
“Bata excels in providing quality footwear with advanced technology, giving comfort and long-lasting wear. And here’s the bonus – their prices are more affordable compared to premium brands in the market.”
“When considering all these investments collectively, the total commitment that Jack’s of Fiji has made to bring the Bata brand to our stores surpasses $1 million. This substantial investment underscores our belief in the potential of the Bata brand in the Fijian market and our dedication to providing top-tier products and services to our customers.”
Khatri revealed they’ve got plans to open new Bata stores in Lautoka, Nadi, and the Central region, along with other store-in-store setups by 2024.
“Looking ahead, there are plans of having standalone Bata stores in various towns across Fiji. The aim is to make Bata a go-to brand for every Fijian out there.”
