South Africa’s Shoprite has opened its third store at City Mall in Nyali, Mombasa; space previously occupied by Nakumatt supermarket which was evicted from the premises in March 2018 over Kshs 27.8 million debt in rent arrears.
The outlet offers a variety of services ranging from food and household requirements, Meat Market, Hot & Cold Foods Deli, Fish Shop, Bakery and Fresh Fruit & Vegetables.
The retailer has two other outlets in Nairobi; one at The Westgate Mall, opened in December 2018, and another at Garden City, opened in March 2019.
Shoprite, which also has stores in Uganda and Tanzania, has a fourth outlet scheduled for later in the year at The Karen Waterfront, Nairobi.
