Department store, City Star opened in Taufusi yesterday to early Mother’s day shoppers eagerly checking out the wide range of goods on offer.
City Star has a selection of furniture, houseware, party supplies and clothing apparel on display.
Owner Johnny Weng said to the Samoa Observer that he looked around and there weren’t a lot of furniture shops that offered a variety of furniture at affordable prices.
“I am looking at bringing in more different kinds of furniture like lounge and dining sets and beds because I want to offer good quality at the best price.”
Store Manager, Leitu Tuau said their department store is for all kinds of special events and that it’s a one stop shop for everything.
“There is a bit of everything in here for anyone from the office, the kitchen, outdoor furniture’s and decoration supplies for weddings, birthdays and gifts for mother’s day. There are supplies for plumbers and electricians and much more. It’s a one stop shop and if you can’t find it here just ask us, we will see if we can get it in.”
Mr. Tuau said he and his staff are excited the store is finally open and they are ready to get stuck in.
“There are six of us working here and hopefully we can hire more people depending on how busy we get. Our boss is a really good guy and we have a great relationship with him. He understands the life in Samoa. He treats us very well and he’s always helping by working alongside us.”
City Star is open six days a week from 8am to 5pm and is located in Taufusi, next to the petrol station.
