Laksala, the undisputed leader in the handicraft, gift and souvenir market in Sri Lanka, has recorded its highest seasonal showroom turnover of Rs.69.1 million in April 2015 since the year 2011. 
Further, Laksala was successful in achieving its highest ever turnover of Rs.3.61 million per day in a single showroom in its 50-year history.
Laksala Chairman and CEO Hasitha Tillekeratne attributed this remarkable performance to the increased patronage by a cross section of local clientele, with a contribution of 68 percent to the monthly sales revenue, who were highly conscious of the quality, reliability, value for money, customer service and care offered by Laksala. 
Tillekeratne further stated that its corporate image and brand values are inter-related since Laksala always delights its customers by offering best quality products at an affordable price. 
He added that spurred by the successful New Year and Vesak promotions, Laksala intends to continue its special promotional campaign to coincide with upcoming Ramazan (Edul Fithr), Hadji (Idul Alha), Deepavali festivals and Christmas. 
Laksala has 14 modern showrooms in strategic locations carrying over 20,000 quality guaranteed items, all manufactured by Sri Lankan craft entrepreneurs keeping alive the traditional skills whilst infusing modern designs.    
With the expanding tourism industry, there is an enormous potential for the handicraft, gift and souvenir industry to grow rapidly in future. Having this in mind, Laksala has planned the establishment of new sales outlets in places of tourist interest such as Passekudah, entrance to Yala National Park, Wilpattu National Park, Haggala Gardens and Negambo beach area, etc.
Laksala remains the largest, most experienced and only state-owned business chain in the gift and souvenir category. In keeping with the vision to retain the leadership in the gift and souvenir market in Sri Lanka, Laksala plays a pivotal role in fostering small and medium enterprises (SMEs) by showcasing local skills and talents through innovative products that appeal to international requirements.
With tourist arrivals targeted at two million, Laksala is confident to achieve its target of over Rs.1 billion turnover in 2015.
