FreshStop, the largest and fastest-growing convenience retail brand in South Africa, brings 24-hour convenience to the Lynnwood Road East community in Pretoria with the opening of its latest store. According to Gerrie Lewies, the Store Retailer, “FreshStop at Caltex Wapadrand Motors opened its doors on Thursday, 10 November 2016 as the 241st store in the national network on Lynnwood Road East in Pretoria, at the main entrance to the Wapadrand Security Village”.

Previously an unbranded store, FreshStop has welcomed Wapadrand Motors into its brand family and the Caltex fuel forecourt has been completely revamped with newly installed tanks and pumps. “We are happy to have completed the refurbishment of this site and we look forward to welcoming our old and new customers back to our ‘new look’ station with all its new and innovative offerings,” says Gerrie.

The store offers Lynnwood Road East residents and those from surrounding areas a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables, a wide selection of grocery items and freshly baked pies, sandwiches and confectionery. To complement the fresh bakery goods, a full-service Seattle Coffee bar with Barista is on hand to serve customers a delicious and fresh cup of coffee. In addition, an ABSA ATM is available on-site. “Not only are we offering our customers a world-class range of products for their enjoyment and convenience, but we will also be offering promotions to help them save money while stocking up,” explains Gerrie.

Gerrie and Louise Lewies, the Store Retailers, have been in the business since 1999 and they have always been inspired to better their communities and go the extra mile to make sure that their customers’ needs are catered for. Their experience and success in the fuel retail business speaks for itself. “I am very excited about this opening and look forward to establishing a great relationship with the people in this area,” explains Gerrie.

FreshStop Wapadrand Motors’ focus is on freshness, affordability, convenience and community advancement. “We have a staff complement of 35 people who have been trained extensively and are willing and able to serve with pride and friendliness,” adds Gerrie.

We wish Gerrie, Louise and their entire team all the best for the opening of this 241st FreshStop at Caltex Wapadrand Motors 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 241 stores countrywide.
