According to the retailer’s Chief Financial Officer Willy Kimani, the development is anchored on the changing environment characterized by shoppers who want to make fewer trips to the stores.
“Naivas Today’s online shopper is mobile driven, using mobile to do his/her shopping, using their smartphones more frequently to place orders. This partnership allows our consumers to save time and money, since most of their daily household needs are available at the click of a button. This allows them to focus on other things that really matter to them”, said Willy Kimani, Chief Commercial Officer,
