Naivas Supermarkets on Wednesday opened its latest outlet at Development House on Nairobi’s Moi Avenue, bucking a trend in the country’s financially strained retail sector.

The family-owned retailer took up space vacated by Nakumatt Holdings, which has closed scores of its outlets across the country in recent months.

The outlet raises the number of Naivas’ stores in Nairobi’s central business district to three, 16 in the county and 44 in the country.

Naivas opened its third 24-hour store in the capital’s CBD last month, two days ahead of schedule in a rush to cash in on the Christmas shopping season.
