shoprite-3SHOPRITE launched in Nigeria just a little over 10 years ago with the opening of its first store in Lagos in December 2005. Over the past decade Shoprite introduced Nigeria to a world-class shopping experience through its core business promise of lower prices.
To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Shoprite Nigeria will be giving away more than 10,000 gift vouchers worth up to N100, 000 between 22 February and 10 April 2016.
The point-of-sale at Shoprite’s till points will randomly select winners during this period. Consumers will automatically be entered into the competition when shopping at Shoprite, with vouchers to the value of ₦10000, ₦100000 or ₦100000 up for grabs.
According to the retailers Executive Director, Adeola Kagho “We are so excited to celebrate Ten years in Nigeria with our loyal customers who have been with us over the years and that’s why we are giving away lots of vouchers in all our stores across the country. Adeola enthused further to say that there is no minimum spend in order to qualify. To claim their prize, consumers need to take their winning till slip to the Shoprite store manager, who will issue them with the gift vouchers”.
Nigeria is the largest economy in Africa, with 16 Shoprite supermarkets across eight states in the Federation of the supermarket chain’s 2 300employees, 99.5% are Nigerian citizens.
Shoprite’s commitment to supporting local enterprise means it has developed relationships with over 300 leading Nigerian suppliers and small businesses. As a result 76% of all products sold are procured locally.
Deloitte’s inaugural African Powers of Retailing report, released late in 2015, named Shoprite the number one retailer on the continent.
