Barely four months since becoming an anchor tenant at the Kitengela Mall, Naivas has decided to close the branch due to under performance.

The chain retailer says that the branch will be closed by the end of this month, and assets in the branch transferred to Lang’ata Branch at Freedom Height Mall.

“We will be closing the Kitengela Mall branch in the next two weeks … We want to ensure we are more accessible and align to new store strategy,” said Naivas chief commercial officer Willy Kimani during an interview.

The move will see the retailer remain with 45 branches countrywide.

Naivas of late has been on an expansion spree, trying to occupy space left by Nakumatt. Among its latest branches include Ciata City Mall along Kiambu Road, another at the Junction of Kenyatta and Moi Avenue and an outlet on Moi Avenue vacated by Nakumatt Holdings.
