Pick n Pay has entered Mauritius with the launch of a 43,000 sq ft franchise superstore and plans to add two further outlets in 2012. The move is part of the retailer’s foreign growth strategy across the sub-saharan region. Having withdrawn from Australia this month, Pick n Pay now has a presence in South Africa, Botswana, Lesotho, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Head of group enterprises Dallas Langman said Pick n Pay chose Mauritius as it had “one of the most successful and competitive economies in Africa”. The company is looking at opening stores in Malawi and Angola.
