Quickmart takes ‘fresh&easy’ 24hour shopping to Nairobi’s leafy suburb of Lavington

Supermarkets chain Quickmart has today opened its first 24-hour outlet at the Westfield Mall in Lavington’s Valley Arcade area following an announcement last year that the branch would be opened before the end of January. Quick Mart is a homegrown supermarket established in 2006 with its first branch in Nakuru town. The retailer prides itself in delivering an exceptional customer experience every time while providing shoppers with a variety of goods at an affordable price!

The Westfield Mall branch will serve customers who live within the wider Kilimani area, Kileleshwa, Lavington and its environs which currently have no 24hour outlets . The Westfield Mall branch is expected to employ over 200 staff who will work in shifts to ensure smooth continuity 7 days a week.

The Quickmart 24hour Lavington branch comes a stitch in time following the collapse of one time regional retail giant; Nakumatt. Quickmart is hoping to fill the gap left by Nakumatt with this first 24hour branch in its chain. Quickmart has grown in leaps with the Lavington branch which opened its doors today making a total ten outlets . Nakuru currently has two stores while Kahawa Sukari, Ruiru, Waithaka, Eastern Bypass, Ruaka, Ruai and Thindigua hosting one store each.

” Before this location was picked for our 10th branch, we conducted a market research which showed that the Lavington area which is a high income populated area lacked the luxury of flexibility when it comes to shopping. We thus stepped in to offer twenty four hours of convenience in order to meet the needs of both the day shoppers and the late night shoppers,’

noted Quickmart Head of Marketing Betty Wamaitha in an interview at the new branch.

Fresh and easy…

Quickmart Lavington, true to its Fresh&Easy slogan stocks a wide range of fresh vegetables and fruits, has set up a world class kitchen that serves delicacies freshly made. In addition, the quickmart bakery prides itself in freshly baked loaves of bread, buns, pies cakes as well as bitings such as samosas . The establishment also offers freshly squeezed juice from a number of fruits and runs a creamery that delivers your milkshakes and ice creams in no time.

24 hour shopping was unheard of in Kenya before its introduction by Nakumatt holdings. The flexibility proved to be a game changer and a big employer. Before the launch of Quickmart Lavinton earlier today, Naivas Supermarket dominated the 24hour supermarket space with three 24-hour branches in its stable.
