Pick n Pay opens new branch in Walvis Bay, Namibia
Walvis Bay ‘ The refurbished Seagulls Shopping Centre at Walvis Bay has now been converted into Pick ‘n Pay Shopping Centre that cost N$20 million.
The opening ceremony was attended by new Walvis Bay Mayor Derek Klazen, who described the event as a major step in the right direction.
‘Development of infrastructure is second on our list of challenges and it is thus with extreme pleasure that I am able to officiate at an event today, which celebrates the enhancement of infrastructure,’ he said.
Walvis Bay has grown tremendously over the past few years, characterized by an increase in population and a high demand for houses. So it now has an additional convenient place where consumers can shop.
The mayor joined the Executive Chairman of the Ohlthaver & List (O&L) Group, Sven Thieme,Ã‚Â in inviting citizens to shop at the newly renovated Pick ‘n Pay Shopping Centre and to enjoy all the modern comforts that the new shop will offer.
Klazen congratulated and praised the Ohlthaver & List Group and Broll Namibia for the faith they have shown and that the targeted markets would grow from strength to strength.
‘Not only have you proven that you believe in us and our purchase power but you have also created opportunities by enhancing the tenants’ shops, thereby assisting them in increased sales which could possibly lead to new employment opportunities and the like,’ he stated.
The development of infrastructure is a win-win situation for all and the Municipality of Walvis Bay supports such wholeheartedly, especially now that it is the start of the festive season and beyond.
‘I invite every member of the Walvis Bay community to do your Christmas shopping right here in the convenience of the Pick ‘n Pay Centre and wish you all a merry Christmas and a Prosperous 2011,’ Klazen stated.
