Retail chain Naivas on Friday opened its fourth store in Nakuru’s midtown along Kenyatta Avenue.
The Naivas’ new store is its fourth in the town and 71st overall.
The opening of the new branches is good news to suppliers in Nakuru, who had lost out on business following the closure of Tuskys and Ukwala supermarkets.
Naivas traces its roots in Nakuru’s Rongai way back in 1990s.
The management maintained that being in the centre of Nakuru is key with proper corporate governance focusing on suppliers and customers.
Speaking during the official opening of the Nakuru’s fourth store, Chief Commercial Officer Naivas Limited Willy Kimani was categorical that the retail chain is now in almost all counties.
“Nakuru is where we started and we have continued to grow reaching many counties. But one of the key areas we have always wanted is to be in the centre of Nakuru. Our corporate governance focuses on suppliers and customers.” said Kimani.
And to ensure customers are satisfied with services as well as meeting their demands, Kimani revealed that the new tore in Nakuru Mid-town shall be operational 24 hours once the curfew restrictions are lifted.
He added that through that, there will be more efficiency as well as provide more job opportunities for Nakuru residents.
“This store is going to be a 24-hours place once the curfew and COVID-19 pandemic is over” said Kimani.
Immediately after opening the doors, locals flocked the store to enjoy the many offers for them.
