Japanese Miniso chain now in Malta

The JB Group, which employs some 250 staff, is expected to add to its workforce shortly after it inaugurated the first Malta outlet for the international Miniso line yesterday.

The Japanese company specialises in the modern wholesale and retail sector and has some 3,900 outlets around the world.

Prime Minister Robert Abela, together with Economy, Investment and Small Businesses Minister Silvio Schembri, officially inaugurated this investment by the JB Group in Tas-Sliema.

The Prime Minister stated it is crucial to always have outlets offering quality products in this retail sector. Dr Abela noted that consumers  in Malta last year accounted for the record sum of eight billion euro, adding that since 2013 the country has witnessed an addition every two days of three companies in the wholesale and retail sector, meaning that more than one outlet opened on average every day including Sundays and holidays.

JB Group Managing Director Chris Sant said the group is investing some five million euro in projects planned for the future, particularly with the opening of more establishments around the country. Mr Sant added that this investment will translate directly into human resources, as the company has increased its staff by 70 over the past four years, and will be adding another 20 staff with immediate effect.
