[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Management of Courts Guyana Inc. is tabulating losses after losing all of its showpiece on the lower flat of its flagship store at Main Street, Georgetown as a result of the Wednesday’s (November 27) flashflood.
Fridges, beds, stoves, washing machines, music systems, chairs and other electrical and household appliances floated as the water rushed into the building early Wednesday morning.
Speaking with iNews Marketing Director Molly Hassan said the unfortunate incident is a ‘real blow’ the company, especially at this time of the year; adding that the natural disaster has severely affected the company’s operations, staff and customers – both potential and current.
However, the Marketing Executive is hopeful that while the company has lost millions, the disruption will only last for a day and posited that business will resume as normal on Thursday (November 28).
iNews was given a walk-through of the store where a further observation of the level of water and the destruction it caused was made.
Hassan assured that no damaged item from the store will be sold to customers as a means of maintaining Courts’ integrity. She also pointed out that all items are covered by a three year warranty and the losses will be borne by the insurance company.
“The damage and water soaked products will be removed from the store. As you can see we are pumping water from the store and as soon as we clear this floor of the water and damage items we will replenish with brand new stock from our well stocked storage bonds” Hassan said.
All operations of the store are expected to resume fully on Thursday (November 28) and running promotions will continue. The company said that it regrets any inconvenience caused to his customers. (Leroy Smith)
