Westgate Mall will reopen on July 18, twenty three months after it was attacked and destroyed by terrorists, director Alex Trachtenberg has said.
Tenants including Nakumatt, ArtCaffé, Ashleys Beauty Centre, are among those set to resume operations.
Nakumatt’s managing director Atul Shah said the firm will start working on finishes and fittings of its store next week as it gears up for the reopening.
“At Nakumatt Holdings, we are preparing for the opening and looking forward to welcome our loyal customers to come enjoy a new in store layout, wide stock variety and fresh ambience,” Shah said.
Businesswoman Terry Mungai of Ashely’s said she had booked space for her company “as a mark of patriotism and confidence” in Westgate Shopping Mall.
“We are confident that Westgate Mall will arise from the ruins to greater heights than it ever was and we have booked space five times bigger to enable us expand Ashleys Beauty Centre services,” Mungai said.
