From the 1 April, Mr Price will solely operate and assume all financial operations of its 11 branches in Kenya, which have been present in the nation since 2007.

Mr Price, a firm listed on the Nairobi Securities Exchange, confirmed it would be selling its Mr Price Home and Mr Price apparel brands, ending Deacons East Africa’s hold.
