PricePointe Wholesale Club, a new entrant into the Nigerian retail sector, modeled after the America’s Costco and Sam’s Club, has started operations with the opening of its flagship warehouse at 6-10 Ilupeju Industrial Crescent, Ilupeju Lagos. The 8000 square meters indoor warehouse is the first of six locations it plans to set up in Lagos, with the next location planned for Lekki, to help its members get products at manufacturers’ prices while cutting out traditional middlemen in the process.
“Speaking at the Launch, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of PricePointe Wholesale Club, Mr. Tayo Williams said, “PricePointe Club is pioneering this world-class multi-store multi-brand to provide a one-stop lifestyle shopping experience for Nigerians who want to shop things in bulk conveniently, at a world class environment that’s convenient for them and their families, and most importantly, at really great prices.”
“With products and services sourced directly from manufacturers and providers, PricePointe club members will enjoy groceries, household items, appliances, insurance, flight tickets, petrol, diesel, and more at massive discounts you won’t find anywhere else; all of which are open to PricePointe club members. Retailers can also buy less than a carton but still enjoy Wholesale prices, as well as the convenient opportunity to shop from 6AM every day, including Sundays.” He added.
Mr. Williams disclosed that PricePointe Club has entered into partnership with various manufacturers and service providers to ensure that its members get the lowest possible prices. He mentioned global industry leaders such as Nigerian Breweries, Reckitt-Benckiser, Procter & Gamble, 7UP Bottling, and Indomie amongst those that have signed to work with them. Others are Binatone, Powergen, Powerhorse, UAC and many more.
The Launch, in partnership with Ecobank, and its multi-featured digital payment solution, Ecobank Pay, as well as Old Mutual, also saw the emergence of winners in the raffle draws held at the launch event, which included prizes of rent up to 2 Million Naira for 1 lucky winner, school fees up to 1 Million Naira for 2 lucky kids, as well as free groceries, travel tickets, & auto insurance for a year.
