peaking when he hosted suppliers to the formal launch of the Tuskys Christmas Deal Poa customer reward programme, Tuskys CEO Dan Githua said local retailers are confident of regaining growth by promoting mutual partnerships with suppliers while enhancing customer experience value at the shop floor. Githua said the local retail sector has a bright future ahead, as it remains a barometer of the economy. “This year has been difficult but we are glad to confirm that we have reached a decision to foster closer relations with a suppliers and related stakeholders in our quest to advance a homegrown retail sector to the next level,” Githua said. “Kenyan retailers have the capacity and ability to ward off the multinationals market assault by maintaining world-class standards on all fronts including prompt payments and customer service excellence,” he added.
