Local stationery shop Samoa Stationery and Books (S.S.A.B.) will host its second roadshow at Fakaofo in Tokelau.

Lupematasila Marlene Mulipola, the company’s manager (international), said Samoa Stationery and Books (S.S.A.B.) will be hosting its second roadshow in Fakaofo, Tokelau and will lead a team to the island from July 16-20.

“We are taking most of the products to sell directly to the people. We also want to showcase the range of products that S.S.A.B. sells and most especially offer discounts for the people of Tokelau,” she said.

Lupematasila said they are taking the roadshow to S.S.A.B. customers who cannot physically purchase from their stores. 

“We are taking most of the products to sell directly to the people. We also want to showcase the range of products that S.S.A.B. sells and most especially offer discounts for the people of Tokelau.” 

The roadshow also is an opportunity for the company to demonstrate the use of the Filecorp system.

“Filecorp team is filing a system that saves space, money and time and we have been supplying various ministries, corporations and companies in Samoa with our filecorp system for seven years now,” she said.

The trip to Tokelau could potentially open up more business opportunities for the company according to Lupematasila. 

“And we know Tokelau has a lot of records which needs to be maintained securely, so our team is looking forward to this opportunity so we can be able to clarify how this system works. We went to Nukunonu in February this year for our first roadshow and it was a very successful trip. We were asked to come again this year to Nukunonu so we are looking at another time this year.”

The visit to Nukunonu in February compelled Fakaofo and Atafu residents to contact the business requesting that the roadshow be taken there too. 

Timing is everything for the company with Lupematasila indicating that a visit to Atafu is being considered.  

“Our timing is good because it falls right during one of Tokelau’s general fonos so there will be different people there from the other islands of Tokelau. We are taking a whole range of products, home utensils, educational materials, stationery and so forth,” she added.
