The third shall be housed in Shanzu Mall upon completion of its construction in 2023.
The supermarket chain which operates under Majid Al Futtaim Company, has announced calls for job applications at the locations they are set to open, setting up drop-boxes for CVs and contact information for job seekers to apply.
Following the resent exit of retailer Shoprite at City Mall in Mombasa, where hundreds lost their jobs, the opening of the three branches is a much welcome initiative for the people in the coastal counties.
Majid Al Futtaim Company is for the first time expanding its retail operations outside Nairobi, where it already has eight stores.
Apart from the job opportunities being created by the new branches, the company says it will continue its dedication to promote local farmers and other suppliers in its quest to stock up their stores.
