Chipata Council Shuts Shoprite

CHIPATA City council has shut down Shoprite Chipata for embarking on an illegal expansion project.

Council public relations manager Kameko Manda said the local authority closed Shoprite for failure to comply with their operation licence.

Shoprite has remained closed from Saturday with security guards turning away clients.

It is not the first time Shoprite is running in trouble with local authorities with Kasama Shoprite having suffered a similar fate recently.
