Courts, which recently launched its new Ashley store in Liguanea, St Andrew, has continued to invest in its retail outlets with the upgrade of the store in Ocho Rios, St Ann.
The store has a new layout featuring the addition of a new sleep centre and Optical and Ready Cash stores.
Courts Ocho Rios shoppers were offered discounts of up to 30 per cent off selected items.
During a tour of the new store, guests were shown a new layout for the furniture store, the Optical store where customers can purchase affordably priced lenses and frames with cash or credit, and the Courts Ready Cash facility which offers short-term loans.
The refurbished facility was unveiled in a ribbon-cutting ceremony last Friday, with guests including Minister of Labour and Social Security, Shahine Robinson; Custos of St Ann Norma Walters and members of the Unicomer team – Dennis Harris, managing director; Heather Green, Courts branch manager; Justine Thompson, Courts Optical branch manager, and Nicolette Lawes-Pink, Courts Ready Cash branch manager.
“Courts has enjoyed a rich and rewarding history of doing business in Jamaica,” Robinson said. “The company has always been on the cutting edge of business, offering quality furniture and appliances for decades. The introduction in Ocho Rios of Courts Optical and the Ready Cash brands are reflections of that trend, and serves, no doubt, as an indicator of their commitment to adapting to the diverse or dynamic economic environment in which they operate.”
Shoppers were offered discounts of up to 30 per cent on some intems, and the first Courts Ocho Rios Ready Cash short-term loan applicant, Woshwarth Matthews, was presented with $20,000 in Courts vouchers during the opening ceremony. Courts Optical presented a total of nine students from the Ocho Rios High School, Brown’s Town Community College and Breadnut Primary School to cover the cost of eye examinations, frames and lenses from the store.
