The National, Friday December 4th, 2015

 THE City Pharmacy group of companies is optimistic of another successful year of operation in 2016, chief executive officer Ravi Singh says.

He told The National yesterday that CPL had performed well this year, the first year of its “transformation programme”, which was a strategy the group adopted to enhance its performance.

Singh said CPL faced a challenge this year when part of its new Waigani Central shopping complex was damaged by fire in July.

Singh said the CPL team had put a lot of hard work and effort in getting the original Stop n Shop supermarket refurbished and opened on Sep 10 for trading.

He said the refurbished supermarket was trading at the same standard as the new supermarket. 

He said the new Waigani Central supermarket would be reopened by the end of next year, with improved conditions and facilities for the customers to enjoy.

Singh said nursing services would be provided at most City Pharmacy outlets, which was part of the company’s transformation programme.

He said some outlets already provided nursing services. 

Singh said training of staff in various fields was progressing well and aimed ensuring that Papua New Guineans attained senior managerial positions.
