Nakumatt has been in a spiral due to massive debts owed to suppliers estimated at Sh15 billion as at February 2015.

Last month, the retailer shut down its Thika Road Mall (TRM) branch, barely a month after closing its outlet at the NextGen Mall on Mombasa Road after just nine months of operations.

Nakumatt and Tuskys recently announced confidential merger talks, but a formal agreement was yet to be reached.

On Sunday, the management said it had “embarked on a structured process of turning around our business.”

Here are photos of the overnight restocking exercise and comments from excited customers.
