According to a statement sent to VerAngola, the new store occupies a total area of around 450 square meters and will be open from 8:00 am to 9:00 pm.
About the inauguration, the company says that some members of the management of the Newaco Group were present at the ceremony, including Fresmart's operations director, Hélder Inácio, who "with a client, cut the ribbon".
Fresmart's expansion plan, the note adds, has so far made it possible "to create more than 1300 direct jobs, including the 40 jobs guaranteed with the opening of this Cassenda store, which had an investment of 180 million kwanzas".
So far, the group has invested more than 900 million kwanzas with the opening of 28 supermarkets in this network, and plans to open more stores by the end of this year, "in order to explore other strategic locations besides the country's capital, taking into account the scarcity of supermarket diversity in certain regions".
The company also states that it wants to "provide development not only for its business, but also for the communities, in addition to contributing significantly to the requalification of urban space, creating a more pleasant environment for the residents of the areas where they are installed".
In addition, expansion also brings benefits to the country's economic and social development. According to the statement, the opening of more stores of this chain corresponds to "an important lever for the promotion of internal production, since 60 percent of the products sold in its stores are of national origin".
Cited in the statement, Hélder Inácio informed that the group "is available to create partnerships with national producers with delivery capacity, product quality and competitive prices".
"Our strategic plan takes into account not only serving the population, but also contributing to the revitalization of the city. With this initiative, we want to promote the rehabilitation of public spaces", he added.
It is recalled that last week Fresmart opened two new stores, one of which outside the capital, specifically in Lubango (Huíla).
