He said they were not allowed by the police to enter and assess to see the damages of their items, since the law enforcement units were present when the store caught by fire.

He is confident that there is still business, and very soon the Store will make other alternatives to open a new shop on a small scale.

The shopping complex is owned by a well-known businessman Mr. Paul Coimbra.
