Public Relations

Premasiri Stores has always taken its corporate social responsibilities seriously, since its establishment in 1952. Its founder, Mr Premasiri Hettiarachchi has over the years, made significant donations and contributions to worthy causes in education, religion and social welfare. In recognition of these services, he was appointed Justice of the Peace within the Judicial district of Colombo in 1951. He was also a long standing member and then president of the Dutugamunu rest house in Kataragama and Amadyapa association of Sri Lanka.
Following in his footsteps, his daughters now continue these corporate social commitments. His eldest, Mrs Anusha Hettiarachchi Hettigoda attends the National Cancer Hospital in Maharagama on a weekly basis to serve morning tea to the children’s wards. This responsibility she has fulfilled without fail for the last three years.

School Book Donation

At Premasiri Stores we take social concern very seriously. Our initiatives have always been in response to the need of the moment. Most recently in January 2015, the Founder’s second daughter, Dr Manisha Hettiarachchi, donated books, stationary and substantial funds to Sri Revatha Primary School in Unanwitiya and its one hundred and fifty students. This primary school has special significance to Mr Premasiri Hettiarachchi being located in his home town.
