Following an overwhelmingly positive response to the opening of our inaugural E-Express pop-up store 6 months ago in Katutura, Windhoek, we are pleased to announce the expansion of E-Express to Mariental, which opened on May 14th, 2021.
Central to the purpose of E-Express is the economic development of underserved communities and less developed regions. To deliver on this vision, we decided to expand the E-Express footprint first to the south of Namibia, which has often been starved of development opportunities.
This E-Express store shall first serve as a last-mile hub to deliver goods and services to Mariental using our low-cost model. Given the continuing threat of Covid-19, we first launched cleaning supplies to low-income communities and local businesses. Once established, we envision expanding the products and services in Mariental and surrounding communities, and introducing our other projects like Building Bosses, our entrepreneurship incubator for informal communities.
We look forward to you visiting the Mariental store and staying tuned in for our expansion efforts to other regions and communities in the near future.
