An ultra- modern shopping Centre, Anaji Choice Mart built in the heart of Ghana’s Oil city, Takoradi in the Western Region has officially been opened by the Western Regional Minister Dr Kwaku Afriyie.
Anaji Choice Mart forms part of Maybek Services Limited, which owns the Baatsona Total Retail Mart located on the Spintex Road, Accra. The state of the art 3000 square meter Shopping Mall sits on a 5000 square meter plot suited at Anaji Saint Francis Road.
Anaji Choice Mart offers an extensive range of services including a Deli, in-house Bakery, Butchery, Supermarket, Salon/Spa, Multipurpose hall, restaurant and Children’s playground. It also features a state of the art electrical store, Contactum which sells quality European electrical fixtures.
Director for Maybek Services Ltd, Ebenezer Nyarko in his address at the grand opening ceremony, hinted that the establishment of the Anaji Choice Mart was born out of almost two decades experience of successfully managing a retail business like Baatsona Total, and the delivery of top notch service to its customers. He also stressed that shopping centre presented the opportunity to bring authentic modern everyday items required in households to the doorsteps of Ghanaians residing in the area.
“We are passionate about things that matter to others; convenience, quality and affordable goods and services, unmatched customer experience, job creation and local development”, Mr. Nyarko said.
“It is our aspiration to become a community feature, where customers can pick up their weekly shopping, forgotten ingredients and also gather for community events and more.”
Also, speaking at the inaugural ceremony of Anaji Choice Mart, the Western Regional Minister, Dr. Kwaku Afriyie applauded Maybek Services Limited for the investment made in the Region. He noted that establishment of Anaji Choice Mart is laudable, as it provides evidence of the government’s drive to improve the private sector and promote local businesses. “What we are witnessing here is in conformity with government policy. Government is not interested in doing business. We want to leave businesses to individual entities, families and corporate bodies. That is our philosophy”, Dr. Afriyie stated.
The Minister also called on potential investors to take advantage of the numerous opportunities that exist in the Western Region. Justifying why investors should consider coming to the Western Region, he said the Western Region produces all of the first 4 resources for export. 67% cocoa, best in rubber in West Africa. 100% of oil and over 60% of gold, and the only bauxite plant in Ghana
“This is the richest region in the country and the Western Regional Coordinating Council will do everything to help investors who want to set up businesses here”, he stated categorically.
