We have come a long way…
The story of CCD Superstores is a testimony that should inspire every aspiring entrepreneur. It is a confirmation of God’s faithfulness and the saying that the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.
CCD started with the name: Bethany Groceries (from Luke 24: 50) on the 21st of March 1993 as a small grocery store or in our local parlance, a kiosk, on 116 Ogudu Road. Ogudu was then a purely residential area with so many undeveloped plots and no shops on the main road. The closest place to get your groceries, especially fruits and vegetables, was mile 2 market. I love eating fruits but getting my daily supply became stressful with the distance and heavy traffic. I knew other women would be going through the same problem, so I told myself I could ‘make life convenient’ for us all by opening a fruits, vegetable and grains shop on Ogudu Road. For 5 years, I watched the kiosk grow into a standard grocery store while we built the main structure behind it.
We changed the name to CCD Superstores (Consumer Commodities Distributor) and moved into the main building on the 7th of June 2000. Having served the people of Ogudu for over 23 years, we officially opened another location in Ogba on Saturday, April 16, 2016.
We also opened a mini-mart, CCD Express in Bariga on the 16th of December, 2017. Each location sells a wide variety of products from groceries, to confectionery, drinks, snacks, and other everyday items.
As the name implies, our goal is to meet both the retail and wholesale needs of our valued customers. The desire to make life easy and shopping convenient for my customers has been the driving force behind the growth of CCD. All my customers need to do is ask and I go searching for the product to put on the shelf. Each time a customer goes out of CCD Superstores disappointed, I feel like a failure. The satisfaction of the customers is our priority. This is why I go all out to source for quality products either from manufacturers, distributors or importers. The maxim is ‘ quality products at affordable prices’.
Shopping at CCD is a delight because of the ambience, easy accessibility, wide array of well merchandised products and good customer service. CCD is a one stop shop with products ranging from consumables both local and imported, household goods, electronics and electrical, cosmetics, toiletries, toys, clothing, accessories, baby, bookshop, pharmacy, jewelries, fruits & vegetables, cooked food, fresh juice, smoothies, ice creams, fresh popcorn…the list is endless!
