Shoprite got established in Nigeria in 2005, and since then, it has been known for its high quality-to-price ratio and satisfying customer service.

Below, you’ll find a list of the top largest Shop rite in Nigeria.


The biggest Shop-rite in Nigeria is the one in Lekki, Lagos and is located in Ikeja City mall, Alausa, one of Lagos state local government areas. It was opened in August 2016.

Interestingly, this is not the first Shop rite location in Nigeria; in fact, it is the seventh location of the supermarket chain in the country.

Though, it is not the only largest mall in the country but it is the largest location in the entire West African region.

It comes with almost a thousand parking spots which enables it to accommodate as much crowds as possible.

The Novare Lekki is 22,000 square meters in size.


The second biggest Shop rite in Nigeria goes to the one located in Ibadan. Funny enough, it is the second outlet in the city of Ibadan.

Another Shoprite was opened in this city as a result of its population, so it made business sense to open another one to accommodate the populace of one of the largest and most populated cities in Nigeria.

The leading supermarket retailer opened this store in late 2014.

The total footage of the Ibadan mall stands at 19,000 square meters with Shoprite having a territory of 4,700 square meters, taking up one-fourth of the entire space.

It has been a major economic boost to the country as it added about four hundred jobs to the local population.


The third place on my list of biggest Shoprite in Nigeria goes to the store located in Kano; it was opened in 2014.

The choice of Kano was as a result of its high population as people mean business. Don’t forget Kano is one of the largest states in Nigeria, so this is a strategic location.

Its construction took 3 years and a total of 110 Million Dollars to build. The total territory of the mall stands at 24,100 square meters while Shoprite takes up the most space out of all stores.


Palms Shopping Mall is located in Lekki, Lagos, Nigeria.

It was opened in 2005 making it the premiere Shoprite location in Nigeria.

The building also plays hosts to other notable establishments such as Game, Hub Media and also General Deluxe Cinemas.

The last on my list of the top 5 biggest Shoprite in Nigeria is Delta City Mall, which is located in Effurun, Delta State.
