On 24th August we celebrated the opening of the new Acacia Mall in Phakalane – and with it the opening of a new SUPERSPAR. The store’s official unveiling makes this the 30th SPAR Botswana outlet to open. in an opening ceremony that included exciting special offers and competitions with great prizes to be won by all of the store’s first customers.
The fun on the day included live entertainment, lucky draws, special discounts and extra prizes for SPAR Rewards card holders. After months of preparation, the store’s staff were eager to finally welcome their customers – and they were not disappointed. Crowds of excited SPAR customers poured into the new store all day. Everyone was impressed by the large selection and the high quality that goes hand in hand with the SPAR Botswana brand.
Acacia SUPERSPAR assistant manager, Mr Monthusi Moses said the new store has a better shopping experience as customers served themselves in the kitchen and bakery. “Instead of customers queuing and served by one employee, they just come and pick their choices and shoot straight to paying points,” said Mr Moses. He promised SPAR customers excellent customer service, noting that all employees were trained on customer service.
He went on to explain that the supermarket would relieve local government from the high unemployment numbers as they have employed 50 new staff members at the shop. He said they saw it fit to create jobs for the youth to mitigate the situation and elaborated on their plans to get involved in community upliftment and to sponsor local youth sports teams. He said that SPAR Botswana identify needs within the community and helps by building houses, providing groceries or adopting schools.
A great start for another SPAR Botswana store!
