Naivas Supermarket is set to open the doors of its newest outlet in Kayole, Naivasha along the Nairobi- Nakuru highway.
The opening of the new store covering 18,000 square feet puts Naivas national store count at 84 with three of those now in Naivasha. The other outlets within the town are Naivasha Kubwa and Naivasha Ndogo. Naivasha Ndogo is the original store that first bore the name Naivasha Self Service Stores a name that later evolved to Naivas.
“We celebrate each store opening as it adds fuel to the f**e that drives the business which is to see to it that we remain to be a local success story upon which many other Kenyan entrepreneurs build their dreams. However, we are particularly very excited about this opening,” Naivas Chief Commercial Officer W***y Kimani said.
“The new outlet has a well thought out product range that has become akin to the brand and being the first food market in Naivasha you can bet that the experience is going to be wholesome not just for the residents of Kayole but even for travelers headed to the rift and western part of the country. This mixed-use buildout has all a traveler needs and we can for sure promise that your stopovers just became better as it is very accessible and has ample parking,” concluded W***y Kimani.
Naivas’ growth has taken place against the backdrop of the struggles of other players failing to honor tenancy agreements and supplier arrangements. Nakumatt folded under the weight of debts while Tuskys has scaled down and is under pressure to release details of a mystery investor they hope will inject Ksh2.1 Billion to help it meet its obligations to creditors and spur revival.
