Quickmart Supermarket is looking to fortify its proposition of providing fresh produce and locally produced products to stay ahead of the competition in Kenya’s retail sector.
The retailer said in a statement during the launch of its 50th outlet in the country in Machakos County and the first in the Eastern Kenya region.
“Situated at the heart of Machakos, the pioneer branch will also mark an entry of the supermarket’s chain of stores into the Eastern region expanding its presence to 14 counties across Kenya,” the retailer said.
“The launch of the stores will greatly promote the local farmers and other suppliers since the chain of stores sources for its fresh produce and most of the other products locally.”
Quickmart Pioneer is now Open!
Welcome to our 50th branch, home of easy shopping,great service and wonderful offers.
