"The group expects its operating environment to remain challenging with keen competition, volatile gold prices and weak retail sentiment," it said. "To meet these challenges, the group will have to continue to leverage on (sic) its well located stores, efficient operating system, creative sales and marketing programmes, motivated staff and also seek out new business opportunities."
