“This store allows us to be part of the action in the heart of Nairobi being our first store in the CBD,” said Betty Wamaitha, QuickMart head of marketing.

“In our view, the retailer will leverage from the relatively high footfall within the CBD, and we expect the government to gradually ease the restrictions of movement especially within Nairobi Metropolitan Area, resulting in a slight surge in activity in the CBD and other retail nodes thus providing a valuable market for the city’s retailers,” commentary from Cytonn Analyst.
