“We Are Not Leaving” – ShopRite Nigeria Debunks Exit Rumour



Top retail outlet in Nigeria, ShopRite, has reacted the story making the rounds that it intends to close shop in Nigeria.

Some hours back, rumor circulated that ShopRite Nigeria was leaving the country for good.

However, Country Director for Chastex Consult, Ini Archibong, in a telephone chat with Vanguard, said this is untrue as the organization is going nowhere. He said:

“Shoprite is not leaving Nigeria. “We have only just opened to Nigerian investors which we have also been talking to just before now.


“We are not leaving, who leaves over a $30billion investment and close shop? It doesn’t sound right.

“We only just given this opportunity to Nigeria investors to come in and also help drive our expansion plan in Nigeria. So we are not leaving.

“I have tried to say this as too many people as I can. There should be no panic at all and all of that. There is no truth in that report.”  Follow us on Instagram @sofovilla | Follow us on Twitter @sofovilla | Like our page on Facebook via @sofovillamedia
