It will further strengthen the world-class shopping experience that we have always been committed to,” he added.

“It has always been our policy to make Lulu brand easily accessible to shoppers in suburbs and outskirt areas, so they do not need to drive a long distance”. “The challenges of COVID-19 are there, but I have full faith and confidence in the visionary leadership of this great country.
