FreshStop, the fastest growing 24-hour convenience retail store brand in South Africa, welcomed its newest store to the national network with the opening of FreshStop Route 59 as the 235th store in the FreshStop national network.

Charl and Annalie Marais, the Store Retailers, have gained a tremendous wealth of experience in the fuel and retail industry and their passion and commitment to support their local community speaks for itself. “We love our community and always want to make sure that they are well catered for in terms of quality products and services at affordable prices, hand-in-hand with a good customer shopping experience, which is what we offer in our store,” explains Charl.

Freshstop Route 59 started trading on Thursday, 29 September 2016. Located on the corner of Johan Le Roux and Cypress Road in Meyerton, the previous Route 59 store has been completely renovated to showcase the FreshStop brand and the fuel forecourt features the latest 20/20 Caltex imagery and brand new underground tanks.


The store offers its customers an exciting and diverse variety of fresh fruit and vegetables, grocery items, and Grab ‘n Go snacks such as freshly-baked pies, bread, muffins and a selection of hot and cold refreshments. In addition, self-service Lavazza Coffee and an on-site Nedbank ATM are available to local residents, customers and commuters for that extra convenience. “We also have a safe parking area for all our customers, and in order to keep our promise of convenient shopping, we’ll be running weekly and monthly specials and promotions. So, do pop in every now and then and rest assured there will be something for you,” says Charl.

FreshStop Route 59 is a business that centres on community growth and employee empowerment and this has been translated into excellent customer service, made possible by a combination of experience and extensive training for employees. “In our employment policy, we have made provisions to give preference to people from the local township around us, in order to promote community growth in a positive way. In general, we are all excited about this opening as we look forward to making a difference on all fronts, whether it be quality products and services, affordable pricing, convenient shopping or community empowerment,” adds Charl.

We wish Charl and his entire team all the best for the opening of this 235th FreshStop Route 59 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 235 stores countrywide.
