Leading indigenous retail giant, Hubmart Stores Limited, has continued in its tradition of bringing satisfaction close to the homes of its teeming customers by opening in Lekki, Lagos, a new outlet located at Lennox Mall ’The Place’, Lekki Phase1.
Hubmart Stores, which prides itself on its Nigerian heritage said its Lekki Mall which was officially opened to the public last Friday, has been purposefully designed to create an environment guaranteed to give customers a comprehensive shopping experience and further enhance Hubmart’s burgeoning reputation as one of the best destinations for shoppers in the country.
Speaking to journalists, Managing Director of Hubmart, Murat Bektaslar said Hubmart’s third store is a firm statement that it is in the retail business to be accessible to its teeming customers, pointing out that the success recorded from patronage of its other outlets in Victoria Island and Ikeja, is a testament to the fact that its customers have wholly embraced all its offerings.
In his words, “we have continuously created an environment where customers can find everything they want under one roof, get the best quality of ultra-fresh produce, and have a delightful, fulfilling and exciting shopping trip.
“We are creating a movement, a fresh movement and as you can see, our customers are appreciative of the efforts we make to ensure all our products are served fresh. Everyone is invited to come experience the store from 11am today when the tapes will be formally cut”
Explaining the reason for siting of the mall in Lekki, Murat stated that locating the mall in Lekki was imperative because Lekki has become a key commercial hub in Lagos State, adding that the working and residential communities within Lekki and its environs made it imperative for the store to register its presence in the locality.
Murat noted that apart from some of the community development efforts embarked upon, the business was poised to engage and positively impact the local community with the array of initiatives in the pipeline.
The store is expected to provide employment for over 100 Nigerians, 60 per cent of which would be sourced from the local community, and serve as a source of livelihood to many more via the extended circle of influence on the local communities (suppliers, engaged vendors, etc.).
