Jet is excited to open a branch in Rusape, increasing shopping convenience for the Manicaland community. The branch which is now complete and scheduled for opening on Friday, 22 September is located at corner R. Mugabe and H. Chitepo St and was formally an Edgars store. The project to convert the store from Edgars to Jet commenced in July 2017. With the store sitting on a gross area of 460m2, this allows for ample space to carry a wide assortment of merchandise to cater for different customer needs.

An added benefit for the Rusape market is that the new Jet branch allows customers to pay for their Edgars account in-store, catering for those who have Edgars accounts. Jet has various financial services products to cater for different customer needs. From our 6 months to pay, deposit free account to the No-payslip product that caters to the informal market, lay-by option is also available at 25% deposit and balance paid over 3 months. We offer our customers a wide array of payment options from Ecocash, cash, bank transfers and swiping facilities, bringing continued convenience to our customers.
The Branch will be managed by Nancy Rusike, who has worked for the Edgars Group for over 22 years. We had the opportunity to speak to Nancy briefly and find out what will make the Jet Rusape branch tick.
