    First Pack opens state of art shop in Masvingo

    Business Reporter

    - Stationery and information technology retailer First Pack has opened a state of the art store in Masvingo along Robert Mugabe Way.
    Knowledge Fodha the sales and marketing manager for First Pack confirmed this to The Mirror.
    "The new Super store opened along Robert Mugabe way is focusing on shopping convinience to the clients. The shop is more of a display shop thus giving the clients a room to feel and experience the products before making a purchase," said Fodha.
    First Pack which won the Best IT and Stationery Award during the Zimbabwe Confederation of Retailers awards at the end of 2015 had a small shop in Masvingo which opened two years ago and this bigger shop shows the confidence that the company has in the Ancient City.
    Fodha added that the store is going to be a one stop shop as it will offer all the IT and stationery solutions for all categories of students.
    "This is not just a shop but a solution center, we have got a title to defend and we need to prove that in all provinces that First Pack is the best not only in Harare or Gweru but in Zimbabwe as a whole and as you know Zimbabwe starts in Masvingo – Dzimbahwe," said Fodha.
    He also said that the shop will have more products on offer which will include an expanded range of laptops of leading brands such as HP, Lenovo, Acer and Apple among others. It is again in this mega shop where a new range of printers will be introduced, these include a cost effective home / office printer Pantum and a heavy duty copier Olivetti ideal for school exams printing.
    The new super store is also going to have First Pack Services division focused on all IT servicing, repair, warranty and selling of computer parts.
    On threats posed by generic, counterfeits and fake cartridges Fodha said "We understand that most of the Masvingo market use these fake tonners knowingly and unknowingly but as First Pack we are targeting that quality conscious clientele segment, as a brand we don't compromise on quality there is nothing like a cheap original product but in fact the customers are being duped to pay for an original price less say $2 when in actual fact that product was supposed to have cost a quarter of the actual price and customers are losing out in a bid to save a few dollars," said Fodha.
    He added that, "We stock A-Z of scholastic stationery from the University student, High school, Primary and ECD kids, affordable laptops for students and desktop for schools are all on offer. Heavy duty printers which are cost effective to run, a single toner can print more than 15 000 copies but going for a mere $120 are also in stock. To those schools who are moving from chalk boards, First Pack have whiteboards and the white board erasers".
    The company boasts of employees with vast experience in areas such as international procurement, sales and marketing, technical knowledge and administration for first class service to the customer.
