PRESS RELEASE: – LARGEST WOOLWORTHS STORE IN AFRICA OUTSIDE SOUTH AFRICA OPENED IN KAMPALA

On Tuesday 20th December 2011, the largest Woolworths store in Africa outside South Africa, opened its doors to shoppers in Kampala, Uganda amid pomp and fanfare. Located off the Northern By-Pass road in the new Metroplex Naalya Shopping Mall, the newest Woolworths store will offer the widest range of Woolworths products ever seen in East Africa in a uniquely pristine shopping environment.

Speaking to the press shortly before the store was launched, the CEO of W- Stores Co Ltd Mr. Ali Mufuruki likened the last three months to a roller-coaster ride that saw a new store open at the Grandocean Baraka Plaza in Dar es Salaam in September. Another store was opened at the Tirupati Mazima Mall in the Nsambya area of Kampala in October and now the third store at the Metroplex Mall in Kampala.
