About Us

Easy Shopping Without Frills

JARA is Nigeria’s first discount supermarket and retail chain that is being created by Nigerians, specifically for the Nigerian retail market.

JARA wants to offer you a basic, but modern, clean, convenient and friendly store with quality goods for a low price in order to enable you to save money on your basic food needs. With our balanced assortment and with our daily fresh products, we offer you the best value on all core products that satisfy your everyday needs. Our stores are not too big and not luxurious, and we don’t spend our money on expensive and fancy displays, so our prices can stay low.

To succeed in our mission “high quality – low pricing”, we use an ambitious and purposive approach. Monitoring costs intensively and continuously working for an efficient organization are two of our main goals behind the screens.

We monitor the quality of our products, we train our employees to understand our mission, we deal with our suppliers fairly and strictly, and we are aware we need to listen to our customers to keep the right price.

We aim to engage honestly and fairly with all our business partners and governmental authorities in the interest of our customers and other stakeholders.

JARA is operated by EDLP Nigeria Limited
