Builders Warehouse launched its first East African store in the up-market suburb of Karen, in Nairobi, Kenya, in August 2020. The store offers a wide range of DIY products and services, home improvement and building materials, and has a gardening section.

In partnership with STARKE AYRES KENYA LTD, the Karen stores’ gardening section offers customers interested in a healthy lifestyle quality seeds and seedlings to buy and grow herbs and vegetables in their kitchen gardens.

The Nairobi store brings the total number of Builders stores outside South Africa to nine and demonstrates the retailer’s firm intention to entrench its presence on the continent. Kenya joins Botswana, Mozambique and Zambia as regions outside the retailers’ South African stronghold. As with each venture into a new territory, Builders’ investment of KES500-million represents a commitment to bolster the local economy. The retail chain created employment opportunities for about 400 individuals during the construction phase and another 145 local staff once the store started trading.

Builders Warehouse provides both instore and online shopping experiences, creating a safe environment for builders and homeowners, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic.
