Bigger is better

Contributing to a better Namibian economy

29 November 2019 | Agriculture

Agra celebrated the re-opening of its Aranos retail branch on Friday, 22 November. The Aranos branch in the Hardap Region has been revamped to the tune of N$7 million, another great milestone for Agra.

The bigger and more modern shop offers larger floor space, innovative shelving, modern equipment, a wide range of products, a large parking area, a loading zone and improved security for customers.

It provides an adequate floor area consisting of shelves and cashier points, an administration office, a newly built ablution block, porch, additional storage space and salt storage.

Agra plays a key role in the value chain of the farmer as the company is an important pillar in the agriculture community. One of Agra's values is 'Rooted in our People' and therefore with this revamped branch Agra is determined to extend its product line and service offering. This will enhance and assist in the development of agriculture where many opportunities still lie for the Aranos community to improve farming practices.

Arnold Klein, CEO of Agra Limited, expressed his gratitude to all Agra customers as well as the Agra team that made everything possible.



Showing gratitude

“Thank you to all the loyal customers for their continued support during the construction phase. Similarly thank you to the Agra Properties retail and marketing team, as without their untiring effort this revamp would not have been possible,” he said.

The branch is offering a wide variety of products at discounted prices until 8 December, apart from regular month-end specials that are available at all Agra stores countrywide.

Agra continuously re-invests in the Namibian economy by improving and expanding its current offering to the agricultural sector and has shown tremendous growth over the past year with the opening of the new Ondangwa branch and currently the re-opening of a bigger and better Agra Aranos branch.

Additionally, major projects which include the revamp of the Outjo branch, as well infrastructure upgrading at all Agra fuel stations, are in the pipeline.

Agra aims to reach out to all communities by providing nationwide services and comprehensive product ranges, including agricultural solutions, building materials, hardware, water equipment, fertilisers, and household and consumer goods.
