This was revealed by Paul Taylor, Progresif ’s newly appointed CEO, in his speech during the opening of the renovated Progresif flagship store at Petani Mall in Tutong yesterday.
Taylor added that Progresif’s obligation to expand its business to help serve communities, help the economy by creating jobs, and investment in the development of the information and communication technology sector help the country progress in line with His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam’s Vision 2035.
“We believe that quality of service is at the centre of what we do and providing the best customer service is one way we differentiate ourselves. In keeping with this critical theme, our flagship stores are built to offer a unique experience through a consultative approach, catering to the needs of our customers,” he said.
The store in Tutong was renovated to reflect the modern Progresif brand. Renovation, which took a few months to complete, was done to ensure that the store’s overall design and look emanate a progressive retail experience and feel.
