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.
