Shoprite Group on Thursday opened its second supermarket in Kenya at Garden City Mall in Nairobi.
The new Shoprite Garden City will cater for all customers’ daily, weekly and monthly food and household requirements. It also has a number of in-store fresh food departments including a Meat Market, Hot & Cold Foods Deli, Bakery and Fresh Fruit & Vegetables.
The store will be open from Monday to Sunday, 9AM to 9PM. It will be run by Shoprite branch manager Kevin Waweru.
The Group opened its first Shoprite store in Kenya at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi in December 2018 and is looking to open two more supermarkets, one in Mombasa and another in Nairobi, before the end of this year.
Shoprite is Africa’s largest retailer with more than 2,700 stores in 15 African countries.
The Group is now looking to establish a firm presence in Kenya, which is the continent’s second-biggest retail center after South Africa according to a Nielsen study.
