In 1976 Mr. Hassan Zahir, son of a prominent Maldivian business man Mr. Ibrahim Gasim (Kalhuhokko Kudadhon Maniku) opened Shop No. 18 on Chandanee Magu, Male' to sell tourism souvenirs. In 1980, with a shift to the present premises at 3, Orchid Magu, Male', Shop No. 18 became Reefside Co. Pvt Ltd.
With complementary merchandise like branded diving watches and electronics, the event signified much more than a name change. This was a time when the general merchandise in Maldives consisted of mixed items and this exclusiveness was something unique and extravagant. It was this dedicated effort that brought out the growth of the company to many outlets that trade only leading branded products.
Reefside Company still leads the way for exclusive selling of watches and electronics of repute in the Maldives . We have further gained the trust of our customers by establishing the first full-fledged Watch Service Centre and reputed Electronics Service Centre for quality after sales service in the Maldives.
