But what will become of the burgeoning J. empire now that the brand’s representative and shareholder Junaid Jamshed has passed away?
Hamid,Junaid Jamshed’s Business Partner,Told “Over the past few years, Junaid Bhai wasn’t very involved in the day to day running of the business.He was busy with his religious work that would involve a great deal of traveling. Nevertheless, he was a director and a shareholder and we were using his name for which he would be given a royalty.”
Following Junaid Jamshed’s death, the brand observed a three-day mourning period during which the stores remained closed. They are now up and running again. “We will persist with staying true to the values that have always defined our brand,” promised Hamid.
