Supermarkets in Kenya

There used to be few supermarkets in Kenya, but their number is increasing quickly. All bigger cities and many smaller towns have them. Their quality is usually quite high, and higher than other countries in the region. Next to Kenyan and other regional brands, many Western brands are available here as well.



With 18 big stores, Nakumatt is the biggest supermarket chain in Kenya. It’s main competitor Uchumi used to be big too, but it had to close due to financial difficulties. Meanwhile it has reopened 14 shops again in major cities.
