Tuskys Empty Shelves: It seems that the collapse of Tuskys Supermarket is imminent unless a rescue strategy is deployed fast. Over the past few months, customers have been complaining that the retailer has been running on empty.
But the full scale of the problems at Tuskys has now been amplified by the empty shelves. Take a look at some of the shocking photos from the retailer that were taken by a customer identified as Simon Omondi:
Here is what customers have been saying over the past few weeks on the state of Tuskys Supermarket:
“Is it just me or is Tuskys showing signs of trouble? Empty shelves, unavailability of many common brands and general feel of resignation. Reminds me of the twilight days of Nakumatt and Uchumi,” Kaka Karim reported on Facebook.
“Tuskys has been having empty shelves for a while now. Tuskys Buruburu,” said Jules Gathiru.
“In Kitale they recently closed a branch which they took from Nakumatt(had ample parking) and used corona as an excuse. But I noted that they didn’t transfer some of the goods to the CBD branch, which had more than enough space to swallow all merchandise from the closed branch. When asked why, they say all goods were transferred to Nairobi. But it’s curious that a supermarket doesn’t have pillows, mattresses, clothing etc and still calls itself a supermarket,” Stephen Arap Chumo commented.
