International fashion retailers LC Waikiki and Woolworths are looking to grow their footprint in Nairobi by opening additional stores at the Hub Mall in Karen before the end of the year. The move is set to increase competition with other clothing brands at the shopping centre.
Turkish fashion brand LC Waikiki will open its second branch in Kenya in line with the group’s plan of opening two more stores before the end of 2017.
Woolworths, a South Africa’s luxury fashion brand, will also open an additional store at the mall.
“The opening of this store at The Hub Karen is in line with our policy to expand the Woolworths brand and make our stores accessible to customers in Nairobi,” said Woolworths in a statement.
LC Waikiki opened its first sub-Saharan Africa outlet at Two Rivers Mall at the beginning of the year and plans to have a third store in Nairobi’s central business district.
“The stable economy in Kenya has supported our investments as a gateway to growing our footprint in the country and the larger African market,” said LC Waikiki country manager Kremena Pencheva.
