The much-awaited $4 mil­lion SB Khan Mall in Labasa is set to open next month. Mall owner and Labasabased busi­ness­man Bashir Khan said they were look­ing for­ward to the ar­rival of en­gi­neers com­ing in from China on the 24th of this month to carry out fin­ish­ing works. “Th­ese en­gi­neers will also come in to test the es­ca­la­tor be­fore they give the green light,” Mr Bashir said. He also high­lighted the con­struc­tion works which were still pend­ing. “We are just wait­ing for the fi­nal mi­nor con­struc­tion works be­fore we open the mall to the peo­ple of Labasa,” he said.

“This es­ca­la­tor is the first of its own kind for the North and we are ex­pect­ing a lot of peo­ple to come in when it starts func­tion­ing.” Mr Khan said the struc­ture of the mall was in ac­cor­dance to the Gov­ern­ments Look North Pol­icy and they were work­ing hard to pro­vide the best for the North­ern com­mu­nity.

In an ear­lier in­ter­view, Mr Khan said the first floor would have eatery, fa­cil­i­ties where peo­ple could sit with friends to have cof­fee or busi­ness peo­ple can have meet­ings while hav­ing re­fresh­ments. “I can­not re­veal now as to how many shops we will have on sec­ond and third floor,” he said. “How­ever, I am look­ing at 36 shops, food courts and of­fices in to­tal at the mall.”

Con­struc­tions of the $4 mil­lion build­ing had started late last year.

Ac­cord­ing to Mr Khan the first floor would have eatery shops and sit­ting fa­cil­i­ties for cus­tomers.

The

en­gi­neers will also come in to test the es­ca­la­tor be­fore they give the green light and we are just wait­ing for the fi­nal mi­nor con­struc­tion works be­fore we open the mall to the peo­ple of Labasa
