He reiterated the commitment of the company and its employees in continuing to serve its customers and the community around them, he reassured those in attendance that Standards will continue to follow the words of its founder, Dr. Anthony N Sabga – “No transaction is good unless it benefits both parties.”

Customers can look forward to a more inviting store plan with increased accessibility to the products being sold. The company aims to target a younger generation of shoppers by focusing on expanding their online resources. Customers would soon be able to shop at their online store from the comfort of their homes. The company’s Managing Director announced their new Head Office in Chaguanas that will be equipped with a technologically advanced training room where all Customer Service Representatives will be required to attend training sessions on a monthly basis.
