Family-owned retail chain Quickmart Supermarket has opened its first 24-hour outlet in Nairobi’s Valley Arcade to further its pioneered estate shopping experience by adding time as a factor to its delivery of retail services.

The supermarket’s new strategic location is expected to serve customers in the wider Kilimani region which includes the Kileleshwa and Lavington neighbourhoods.

“This area is populated by high-come income shoppers who require the flexibility of shopping at any time. This one stop branch will fill the unmet shopping needs,” said Quickmart Marketing Head Betty Wamaitha.

The new branch brings the retailer’s total outlets to 10, adding to its two branches in Nakuru town, one each in Kahawa Sukari, Ruiru, Ruai, Ruaka and Waithaka. Quickmart has further branches in Thindigua along Kiambu road and the Eastern Bypass.

The family-owned chain which has its roots in Nakuru was setup in 2006 by late businessman John Kinuthia has embarked on a compound expansion plan to meet its ends.

The retailer is banking on Kenya’s growing middle class and youthful population to expand into more residential areas in and out of Nairobi to keep with the trend which has seen retailers opt out of traditional malls and town centres to bring services closer to their customers.
