FreshStop, the fastest growing 24-hour convenience store retail brand in South Africa, has opened its 229th national store on Thursday, 18 August 2016 on the corner of Republic and Surrey Roads in Randburg, Johannesburg. Previously a Star Mart store, FreshStop at Caltex Republic Road has undergone major renovations and its fuel forecourt has been upgraded significantly to feature the latest 20/20 Caltex imagery. “The forecourt was renovated and its increased lighting makes the site more user-friendly and secure, especially at night. There are also multi-dispenser fuel pumps that enable quick service for our customers,” says Patricia Khanyile, the Store Retailer.

The store offers Randburg residents and commuters a great range of fresh fruit and vegetables, an assortment of grocery items, as well as a wide selection of Grab n Go snacks, cool drinks, and baked goods. A full-service Seattle coffee bar is also available in-store with a trained Barista to cater for the caffeine needs of customers. An FNB ATM and a car wash are also available on site for extra customer convenience. “This is an exciting convenience store that provides healthy eating options for its customers. Our customers are also free to take advantage of our affordably priced goods and exciting specials and promotions, which we occasionally run in-store,” explains Patricia.

Patricia Khanyile has been in the fuel and retail industry for the past 16 years. “I am very happy about the opening of this store and it’s my intention to put all the experiences I have acquired over the years towards ensuring that fresh, healthy food at affordable prices and convenience shopping are easily available and accessible to our local community, customers and commuters alike,” adds Patricia.

We wish Patricia and her entire team all the best for the opening of this 229th FreshStop at Caltex Republic Road store.

FreshStop, named International Convenience Retailer of the Year 2013, is South Africa’s fastest growing 24-hour convenience store brand and has a network of 229 stores countrywide.
