Hubmart Stores Opens Lekki Outlet …Marks Valentine With ‘Love Corner’


Following the successful launch of its exciting Ikeja Mall, leading indigenous retail giant – Hubmart Stores Limited, is poised to continue in its tradition of bringing satisfaction close to homes of its teeming customers in Lekki and environs with the opening of a new outlet situated at the Lenox Mall, beside D’Place, Lekki

Hubmart Stores, which rides proudly on its Nigerian heritage, announced that the Lekki new store which will be officially opened to the public on Friday the 9th of February, 2018, was purposely designed to create an environment guaranteed to give customers a comprehensive shopping experience and further enhance Hubmart’s burgeoning reputation as one of the best destinations for shoppers in the country.

Speaking, the managing director of Hubmart, Mr. Murat Bektaslar, said, “the Hubmart’s third store is a firm statement that it is in the retail business to be accessible to its teeming customers.” Bektaslar pointed out that the success recorded from patronage at its other outlets in Victoria Island and Ikeja is testament to the fact that the shopping public has embraced its brand.

“We have continuously created an environment where customers can find everything they want under one roof, get the best quality of ultra-fresh produce, and have a delightful, fulfilling and exciting shopping trip. We are creating a movement – a fresh movement and as you can see, our customers are appreciative of the efforts we make to ensure all our products are served fresh. Everyone is invited to come experience the store when the tapes are formally cut,” Bektaslar stated.

Explaining the Lekki choice for the new store, Beklastar said that locating the mall in Lekki was imperative because Lekki has become a key commercial hub in Lagos State, adding that, apart from some of the community development efforts embarked upon, the business was poised to engage and positively impact the local community with the array of initiatives in the pipeline. He said that the store would provide employment to over 100 Nigerians, 60% of which would be sourced from the local community, and serve as a source of livelihood to many more via the extended circle of influence on the local communities; suppliers, engaged vendors, etc.

Furthermore, the Vice president, marketing, Cheng Fuller, stated that, this Valentine, Hubmart is playing up on its mantra of ‘Happy To Help…Always’ with its love corner valentine campaign, while urging customers to walk into any of the Hubmart stores in Victoria Island, Ikeja and Lekki upon opening and go to the love corner where they can select items according to their budget from the available items and get them packaged and delivered to whoever they want to show love within Lagos. This initiative, Fuller said, is born with Hubmart’s desire to spread the message of love in line with its commitment to serve.
