Shoprite opens second store in Kenya at Garden City with two planned in 2019

The new Shoprite Garden City will have in-store fresh food departments including a Meat Market, Hot & Cold Foods Deli, Bakery and Fresh Fruit and Vegetables

NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 21 – Retail giant Shoprite has opened its second supermarket in Kenya at the Garden City Mall in Nairobi.

The retailer opened its first Shoprite store in Kenya at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi in December 2018 and is looking to open a further two supermarkets, one in Mombasa and another in Nairobi, before the end of this year.

The new Shoprite Garden City will have in-store fresh food departments including a Meat Market, Hot & Cold Foods Deli, Bakery and Fresh Fruit and Vegetables, according to Branch Manager Kevin Waweru

Shoprite, which is Africa’s largest retailer with 2,700 stores in 15 countries, is looking to open two more supermarkets in Nairobi and Mombasa.

It is now looking to establish a firm presence in Kenya, a market with 33 percent formal retail penetration making it the continent’s second-biggest retail centre after South Africa, according to a Nielsen study.

“Shoprite is committed to supporting Kenyan enterprises and to this end 100 percent of the supermarket chain’s extensive fresh produce selection is sourced locally,” said Waweru.
