Carrefour supermarket will be opening up stores for the Residents of Naalya, Kyaliwajjala and the surrounding areas in the nearby future to enable people shopping conveniently at the famous Naalya-based Metroplex Mall and preparations to have the supermarket openerd are high before the New Year.
The Naalya-based Metroplex Mall was opened in 2011 was last year sold to Gateway Delta, a Mauritius based company as a redevelopment opportunity. Already, there are several companies, both local and foreign that have booked space at the mall. The exciting of them all is the Carrefour Market.
This will be the second store to be opened in the country by the Dubai-based Majid Al Futtaim Group. The store is renowned for its diverse range of products as well as low pricing and as such, residents of the area need not trek all the way to Oasis Mall to get the same service.
The location of the Metroplex shopping mall is ideal from a retail point of view, especially with the construction of the new access road from Kyaliwajjala-Naalya road, its proximity to the Kampala northern by-pass and affluent areas of Ntinda, Naalya, Namugongo, among others.
Currently, signage has been put up all around the Metroplex Mall showing that the Carrefour Market will be opening in the area soon. Construction work has been ongoing at the complex with the parking lot complete and a number of other businesses already operational.
The Carrefour market in Naalya is expected to offer employment to about 200 people.
