ew Labasa businessman Radhe Swar Prasad, 69, has been shopping at Courts the last 49 years.
Back in 1971, the then 20-year-old Mr Prasad initially worked as a licensed teacher before joining the then Fiji Electricity Authority (FEA) as an electrician.
Like the rest of youths those days he was into music – he loved to sing and dance. “Back then there was no Courts store in Labasa,” Mr Prasad said.
“I had just started working as a licensed teacher in 1971 and was single at that time; I loved listening to the music,” he said. “I saw the advertisement in the local paper and I wanted to get a stereo so I can dance to music I love listening to.
“That time, there was no Courts branch in Labasa, so everything was arranged through fax to Suva.
“With their easy credit terms and most importantly their friendly service, I bought a stereo.
“Courts has stuck with me since that all my furniture and household goods including the fridge.
“At that time when you’re having a hard time with the payments, their staff would help you out.
“Now their music department has extended, we need not to come to Suva to buy.”
“The electric appliances have assisted my wife in numerous ways. Our lives are made easy with Courts.
“Courts have assisted my family in making our home more comfortable.” Mr Prasa, a retired staff of FEA now known as Energy Fiji Limited (EFL) is now running his electric shop in Labasa
The father of three lives in Malawai in Dreketi.
Mr Prasad, is grateful to Courts that although they live on Vanua Levu the storehas the latest technology and innovation. He thanked Courts for their friendly services over the years and to keep up the great work.
