FreshStop, the fastest growing 24-hour convenience retail store brand in South Africa, is doing its best to ensure that convenient shopping and product variety are easily accessible to the local Mokopane community.
As a result, the new FreshStop at Caltex Eager Motors store opened as their 225th national store on Thursday, 14 July 2016 at 90 Thabo Mbeki Avenue in Mokopane.Previously a Star Mart, the site has undergone different stages of renovation and the fuel forecourt has been upgraded significantly to incorporate the latest 20/20 Caltex look. “With the upgrade, you can now get any product at every pump, making it more convenient for our customers,” explains Gerhard van der Westhuizen, the Store Retailer.
The store offers its customers an exciting range of fresh fruit and vegetables, grocery items, and Grab ‘n Go snacks such as freshly-made sandwiches, pies and refreshments. In addition, a self-service Lavazza Coffee machine offers great coffee and best of all, the first Crispy Chicken outlet in the area has opened in-store. In addition, a car wash and an ABSA ATM has been installed in-store for extra convenience. “Our store brings a lot more convenience to the clientele. FreshStop Eager Motors will fill up and fresh up every customer it serves inside and out. There’s no need to park into the mall’s parking lot and walk to the store, you can get your veggies, bread and milk while filling up your car tank to save time and energy,” suggests Gerhard.
With an outstanding track record of 13 years in the fuel and retail industry, Gerhard van der Westhuizen has brought a new dimension to the site following its latest conversion to the FreshStop brand. Gerhard’s go-getter attitude inspires him to constantly look for better ways to serve his community. “I am very excited about this opening and I am surely looking forward to running a successful business with happy customers to show for it,” adds Gerhard.
FreshStop Eager Motor’s passion for community empowerment has inspired its employee make-up, which comprises a mix of experienced staff who have been working on the site for 20 years plus and new staff who have undergone extensive training and continue to undergo training to ensure outstanding customer service. “ We have retained our old employees as we believe they have a lot to teach the new staff going forward,” adds Gerhard.
We wish Gerhard and his entire team all the best for the opening of this 225th FreshStop at Caltex Eager Motors store.
