Our customers can expect quality fresh products at great prices topped with friendly staff and excellent customer service,” says Shikhar.

The newly-renovated FreshStop at Caltex Umtentweni opened its doors on Thursday, 23 March 2017 on the corner of Link Road and the R102, Umtentweni in Port Shepstone, Kwazulu-Natal. As the 251st store in the FreshStop national network, the store offers customers a wide selection of fresh fruit and vegetables, a range of grocery items, and Grab n Go snacks such as freshly baked cakes, pies, sandwiches and refreshments. In addition to the self-service Lavazza coffee and ABSA ATM, the ever-popular Crispy Chicken outlet has opened in-store and has proved popular with locals.

According to Shikhar, “Excitement is an understatement to describe how we feel about this opening, more so, it is a great opportunity to be part of an amazing brand like FreshStop. We will do whatever it takes to give local customers and commuters excellent customer service and an all-round convenient shopping experience”.
