Walmart International News: Walmart to open 2,000 jobs in Nigeria
Walmart International, the world’s largest retail company, announced on Tuesday that it is expanding its business in Nigeria with the opening of two new stores in the country.
The stores, at the two Nigerian towns of Maran and Kaduna, will employ up to 100 people, according to Walmart.
Walmart says it will also open its first store in Niger in the northern town of Mara, which will employ approximately 20 people.
“The opening of these new stores will further strengthen Walmart’s presence in Nigeria and further strengthen the company’s commitment to the country and the people of Nigeria,” the company said in a statement.
This is the second time in less than a year that Walmart has announced plans to expand its presence in the Middle East.
In June, Walmart announced plans for a second store in the Gulf states of Bahrain and Qatar.
Last week, the company also announced plans in Egypt to expand operations in the city of Alexandria.
In March, Walmart said it was expanding its presence throughout Africa by hiring over 100 new people.
