Shoprite has announced its new flagship store at the newly constructed Kwara mall in Ilorin today.
Shoprite General Manager, Anton Wagenaar, will be joined by notable personalities, distinguished Ilorin indigenes and government functionaries to officially mark its presence in the middle-belt region of Nigeria.
Trading from the left wing of the ground floor, the 3,700 square metre store is part of Shoprite’s expansion strategy, as it intends to cover every major city in Nigeria. The store space is comparable to the one at the Palms in Lekki and will have as neighbors a rich line of other international and local Nigerian retail brands.
Kwara Mall is said to currently be the fourth largest shopping Mall in Nigeria, which is a joint venture between Persianas and the Kwara State government. Located on Ilorin premier business district, the new aspirational store will offer customers the very best of Shoprite’s customer service, branded products, groceries, hot bakery meals, as well as a specially chosen selection of food.
Shoprite Business development manager, Jan Van Zyl, said: “we’re happy to be opening in such a welcoming environment. Kwarans are renowned for their effortless taste and we have the quality to satisfy.”
