Leading retailer Naivas Supermarket is scheduled to open 3 branches in a
span of one week ahead of the Kenyan Christmas festivities which are typically kicked off by
Jamhuri Day. This development will bring the retailers’ store tally to 91.
These store openings come as the 12th edition of Kikwetu, Naivas annual festive season
campaign is transitioning into more festive gear. This year the campaign is dubbed Team
Naivas and for the first phase, it delivered, Kikombe Kikwetu and as from the Jamhuri
weekend it’s presenting Krisii Kikwetu and this is a great opportunity to welcome the new
communities into the festivities.
The Naivas Christmas kikapu carries Naivas Foodmarket Ojijo at Boardwalk Mall located in
Parklands along Ojijo Road which opens its doors to the public on 9th December 2022. The
store is of the elevated foodmarket concept and beautifully compliments the very exquisite
new mall. The next goody in the Naivas Christmas kikapu is Naivas Nairobi West located in
Nairobi West shopping center. This store will start serving customers on Saturday 10th December, 2022. The final gift in the form of a store opening for the year will be Naivas
Express Uthiru on Friday 15th December.
“This new development was motivated by the need to offer convenience to our shoppers by
offering them a world-class shopping experience at their doorstep. We have not had a
presence in all these three places and we are elated to be welcoming more communities into
Team Naivas,” said Willy Kimani Naivas Chief Commercial Officer.
“Our excitement is also compounded by the fact that this is when all the get-togethers,
sherehez and homecomings are held and we now have three additional communities where
we shall be a part of these life moments,” concluded Willy Kimani.
With Team Naivas shoppers across all 91 branches will enjoy market-leading sale promotions
and different giveaways ranging from Naivas Gift vouchers, the Iconic Mbuzi, ksh.200 cash
backs from Visa and 65’’ tvs from Coca-Cola. It is exciting that the residents of Parklands,
Nairobi West and Uthiru will get to experience the joy that is the Naivas festive season as they join in on Krisii Kikwetu.
