Nedumkandam: In a bid to provide superlative service to the customers, some of the Maveli stores here in Idukki district are getting a makeover. The Koottar Maveli store will be made into a Supplyco supermarket and the Puttady Maveli store upgraded into a Maveli supermarket.
The Supplyco supermarket here will be spruced with latest facilities and would start functioning from a new building. The new Supplyco super market at Koottar will have a wide array of products from household items to fruits and vegetables, and the customers will be able to directly select the articles of their choice.
The Supplyco supermarket, which was functioning from a crammed one room at central junction here, will be moved to a spacious building at ‘padinjare kavala’. The outlet, which comes under the Kerala State Civil Supplies Department, has an area of 2,500 sq ft with special corner for the sale of fruits and vegetables.
The supermarket has a parking area spread across 2,000 sq ft and at a time the outlet can accommodate 500 to 1,000 shoppers.
Though the related work is over, the inauguration of the supermarket has been postponed as the election model code of conduct is in force. The authorities concerned said that the supermarket would be opened after May 23, the day the poll results would be declared.
