“It’s great to have a Teleshop outlet out this way as it’s convenient for both locals and tourists,” said Maher.
To mark the occasion, Telecom offered some opening day specials, spot prizes, a sausage sizzle and lollies for the kids.
The company reported a “rush of customers” that came in for the $10 bonus top-ups and tourists stopping in to use the cyberbooths – which had 50 percent off yesterday.
The new shop opening hours are 10am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 12 noon to 4pm on Sunday. The shop will be closed on Saturday.
Teleshop Muri will be offering identical services as the Avarua store.
