The Mining Engineer and Serial entrepreneur, Engr. Kayode Adamolekun has turned the tide by adopting a pet plastic payment method at his newly launched business, CURECOhealthmart Pharmacy and Supermarket, a member of the Hardarms Group of companies, in Ibadan.
Speaking to an Ibadan Media correspondent at the opening ceremony on Sunday afternoon, Engr. Kayode noted that the new business is not really about profit making, but an avenue to impact lives by bringing quality service to the people, especially people in Joyce B, Oke-Ado, and its environs.
“It’s a new era in the hospitality business, even though everybody needs money, our priority is not about the profit or money we want to make from this business, but we want to make it another avenue to impacting people’s lives by bringing quality service to people especially the people in Ibadan.
Amidst the remarkable advancements and industrialization that have propelled human civilization, the new business has also developed a novel waste-to-wealth initiative aimed at remediating degraded land from flood and erosion by accepting plastic bottles as a means of payment at the store.
“Another fantastic thing here is that we accept plastic payment. Yes! Instead of throwing your plastics away, you can just store them somewhere and later bring them to our store, we’ll weigh them, record it in your name, it’s equivalent in Naira will be used in giving you products from our store, be it magi, provisions, or any other items. You can also build your credit on it and later use it as thrift, you can have a target savings for one year and I can assure you that your money is safe with us, he added.
CURECOhealthmart is located directly in front of Celestial Church, Joyce B Road, with a confectionery space, where Bread, Pizza, Shawarma, Chicken, and meat pie will be served hot.
So, he advised the people of Joyce B, Oke-Ado, and its environs to come around and patronize the business and also tell them exactly what they need.
