Woolworths expands foot print
Boasting an impressive 480 square metres, Woolworths can lay claim to the biggest food market. Situated at the recently opened Grove Mall, the food market forms part of the group’s ninth store and the third located in Windhoek with similar stores located in Swakopmund, Walvis Bay and diamond mecca Oranjemund.
“Woolworths has had great success in Namibia and we are very excited about our new store at The Grove,” said Paula Disberry, Woolworths Group Director, Retail Operations.
“Having traded in Namibia for a number of years, the customers are now familiar and loyal to the Woolworths brand. We are delighted to be able to meet our customers’ expectations by opening a new store and we are optimistic about our future in Namibia.”
“With the opening of The Grove, Woolworths now has over 250 employees in Namibia. We are actively investing in staff development programmes with an emphasis on building skills. This new store in Windhoek is another example of our ongoing commitment to our African business as we deliver on our strategy to be a leading Southern Hemisphere retailer,” added Disberry.
The opening of The Grove will also coincide with the recent launch of the highly successful award-winning WRewards loyalty programme. The rewards programme allows customers as much as 20% in savings on items throughout the store.
Woolworths is also very excited to have the opportunity to partner with local suppliers as part of our fresh food offering in the country Disberry explained.
