South African retailer Shoprite has extended its presence in the Kenyan market after opening a second store in Garden City along Thika Superhighway.

The 3,572 metres squared operating space at 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

They opened their first supermarket in Westgate last December and plan to open two more this year. One will be in Mombasa and the other will be in an unnamed location in Nairobi.


It boasts some 2,700 outlets in 15 African countries with the promises of lower prices to attract more customers, including local sourcing of all its groceries.
