Choppies takes over Solomons Supermarket
Published: 27 March 2014

CHOPPIES Enterprises Limited has taken over Solomons Supermarket in Bulawayo as it continues to expand its supermarket chain, in a deal expected to create more jobs particularly for the city's unemployed youths.

The Botswana-based retail giant last year took over Sai Enterprises owned by Bulawayo business mogul Raj Modi. He bought back 20% of the shareholding in a major deal early this year.

It has emerged Choppies, which already owns more than 10 supermarkets, has swooped on Solomons Supermarket located between Fife Street and Fourth Avenue.

The premises of Solomons Supermarket, a popular retail outlet both before and after the adoption of the multiple currency system in January 2009, had been closed for sometime.

Choppies managing director Raj Modi confirmed the take-over of Solomons Supermarket, adding that as new owners they would start operations in about six weeks' time.
