New Grocery Stores Open in Jobsite
02 January 2020
With less than two months’ notice, the retail stores transitioned successfully at Jobsite.
Toward the end of last year, the company changed the grocery retail services contract for the Highlands and Lowlands to PT Matahari Putra Prima Tbk., and the stores now operate under the name FoodMart Primo. On December 27, 2019, the Jobsite community flocked to the grand opening of the new grocery store both in the Highlands and Lowlands with much excitement.
“This is a positive partnership and shows the company’s commitment to quality of life in the community," said Executive Vice President-Human Resources and Security Risk Achmad Ardianto.
He also conveyed his appreciation and thanked everyone for the tremendous cooperation of PTFI and MPPA as well as Hero for all of its years of service and support in the past.
In the Lowlands, a ribbon-cutting ceremony for FoodMart Primo’s opening was held with Bill Rising, Vice President-Strategic Business Services & Transportation, representatives from the store and customers.
Rising welcomed FoodMart Primo to Papua, and especially to PT Freeport Indonesia. He added that its presence in Papua will provide necessities to employees at affordable prices similar to other regions.John Luis Randongkir and other employees and their families are excited about the new grocery store and the variety of options.
"At first, I just wanted to check out the ambience at the new grocery store, but I found a lot of healthy, quick food such as these steamed sweet potatoes. Hopefully, in the future there will be even more healthy, ready-to-eat food," said Randongkir.
