Home-grown retailer of 30 years City Pharmacy has sadly lost our Head Office and Warehouse in a fire overnight in Uduka St, Gerehu. No one was harmed in the blaze which began around 10pm on Sunday evening.
CPL Management are meeting today to plan out the recovery and rebuild process. Fortunately all CPL stores (City Pharmacy, Stop N Shop and Hardware Haus) across Papua New Guinea, including Port Moresby are able to operate and are open for normal trading.
CPL is fortunate enough to have many supportive suppliers who are already providing assistance in stocking our stores.
It is too early to speculate on the cause of the fire.
CPL Managing Director Joe Barberis said
“The facilities we have lost will throw up a big challenge for CPL, however the CPL team are already working hard on minimising the impact on customers and trade.
We appreciate the many messages of support from the community
