Cape Town - Shoprite’s Palanca store reopens on April 28 2016 after being closed for more than a year due to a fire that caused widespread damage to it in 2014.

The Shoprite Group reaffirmed its commitment to growing it’s offering in Angola by undertaking a significant rebuild of its Palanca store, which will see the creation of 339 jobs for local Angolans.

The group has already invested more than 25 billion kwanzas in Angola since it began operating in 2003, with 440 million kwanzas specifically earmarked for upcoming projects such as the Palanca store re-opening. Through its network of 29 stores, Shoprite has employed and trained more than 4 000 people.  

Shoprite group CEO Whitey Basson will officially open the store together with store manager Manuel Felix Nzinga and his team.  

The group said it supports over 150 local suppliers, with more than 3 000 local brands and products stocked in its stores across the country.
