Woolworths to open stores in Nigeria

first_img13 October 2011South African retail chain Woolworths has entered into a joint venture with listed Nigerian firm Chellarams Plc that will see the two companies open three Woolworths stores in December, with plans to open seven more over the next two years.Two stores will open in Lagos, one at The Palms and the other at Ikega, while the third store will open in Polo Park in Enugu State in Nigeria.“We are confident about our investment in Nigeria and we are very pleased with the growth prospects of the Nigerian market,” Woolworths International executive John Fraser said in a statement this week. “The country has a large population with significant and growing middle and upper income groups.“We have found the right partner in Chellarams Plc to grow the Woolworths brand in Nigeria.”Accelerating African expansionThe joint venture is part of Woolworths’ plans to accelerate its expansion into other African countries. “Joint ventures with local partners such as Chellarams Plc is the new business model for our expansion plans in other African countries,” said Fraser.“We have moved away from the franchise model we had in the past in some African countries.“It’s not only a better profit model for Woolworths, but it’s also better for customers.”The company used such a joint venture model last month when it partnered with businessman and former franchise partner Ali Mufuruki to open stores in Tanzania and Uganda.Woolworths aims to open 16 stores in African countries this year taking the total number of stores to 60 in the current financial year.The new stores will be larger than current ones, with retail space increasing by 42% in the current financial year and by an estimated 145% over the next three years on the continent.Woolworths has had a presence in African countries for over 10 years and currently has stores in Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.Woolworths also intends to open stores Angola.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

This Is an Invitation

first_imgThis is an invitation. I am inviting you to do something other than make a New Year’s Resolution.I am inviting you instead to make a New You Transformation. You know, the transformation into the “you” that you want to be, could be, and should be. You know, the “you” that you have been waiting for. The “you” that you have kept us waiting for.This is the invitation you have been waiting for.You are invited to think bigger than a simple resolution. You are invited to think about who you want to be in every area of your life. I am inviting you to make the decision to change everything that needs to change. If what you are doing now could get you the results you wanted, you’d already have those results. If what you are doing isn’t working, this is your invitation to change it.I am inviting you to transform and reinvent yourself. This is an invitation to become the best possible version of yourself. This is an invitation to swap small, linear improvements for exponential growth. This is your personal invitation to finally go “all in” on going “all in.” Throw down the gauntlet. Cross your Rubicon. Take your place.It’s your right and your duty to reach your full potential, even though you can’t imagine what that potential is, and even though no one has ever reached their full potential. This, however, is your invitation to try. It’s your invitation to be the first to ever do so.This is an invitation to do what you have heretofore been afraid of doing. It’s an invitation to step into and through your fears and see who is on the other side. This is an invitation to meet the you that you want be, the one who lives just on the other side of that fear. It’s an invitation to put yourself at risk, giving up the comfort and the security that are the chains you have bound yourself in.This is an invitation to stop doing what you feel you must do, even though it has you locked in place, like your feet are set in concrete. If what you are doing no longer serves you, set it down. If it never served you, let it go. This is an invitation to leave behind everything that needs to be discarded. You are invited to move forward without carrying anything that isn’t going to serve you on your new path forward from here.You are invited to fail. You are invited to get many things wrong. You are invited to take missteps, to go the wrong direction, to go back over ground you’ve already covered, and to change direction until you find your way. I am inviting you to persist over time. With enough time and energy, all obstacles eventually yield. The overnight success you will become 10 years from now starts today. This is your invitation to start.New Year’s Resolutions are made and discarded in a matter of days. Transformations take time. They require real change in more than one area. This is an invitation to change everything, to put your plan in motion, to take the first step, followed by 1,000,000 more steps, on your way to becoming who you really are.You are a big, bright, shining star. You’re invited to share your light with us. You might not see it yet, but we do.• Who will you become in 2017?• What are you willing to change to become that person? Essential Reading!

At 19, Krushnaa Patil became the first mountaineer from Maharashtra to reach the summit of Mount Everest and in the next two years scaled six of the world’s highest peaks, one in every continent. She went on to become the first Indian woman to climb Mount Vinson Massif in Antarctica.The Journey: Professional mountaineering happened by chance to the girl from Pune when she took a summer course at the Nehru Institute of Mountaineering in Uttarkashi after Class XII in 2007. Atop Mount Satopanth in Uttarakhand during her pre-Everest expedition, Patil was hooked.The challenge: She couldn’t find a sponsor for her Everest adventure, so she took a bank loan of Rs 30 lakh. “Sponsors don’t find it lucrative to put their money into mountaineering. It’s not a very popular sport,” says Patil.The future: She is setting up an adventure company.Second Opinion”Achievements at such a young age are noteworthy and we need such young girls in adventure sports.”Reena Dharmashaktu, first Indian woman to ski to south polelast_img read more
