The store was set up with the aim of providing customers with an outlet to get all their favourite Lenovo products in one spot. Lenovo and Slot Systems also used the unveiling of the Retail Store to announce an in-store promotion that rewards customers with exciting free gift items for every purchase they make at the store.
Speaking on the development, Distribution Channel Manager at Lenovo Technologies West Africa, Mrs. Terae Onyeje said: “The Lenovo Nigeria and Slot System partnership is a reiteration of our commitment to providing our product range to the Nigerian market. For the last three years, we have cultivated a partnership with Slot Systems for the purpose of making our products accessible to Nigerians around the country through a trusted dealership.”
Speaking at the launch of the Retail store, Manoj Rajasekharan, Smartphones Business Lead at Lenovo Technologies West Africa said “Lenovo Moto will serve as our primary smartphone brand and our Sales and Marketing investments will be behind it. This will allow us to offer a more focused smartphone portfolio, bringing together the best technology, designs and user experiences under one brand. However, this transition will take some time, and we may continue to use the Lenovo brand for channel differentiation where it makes sense.”
Chief Executive Officer of Slot Systems, Nnamdi Ezeigbo spoke in the same vein, and expressed happiness with the Lenovo partnership. He described Lenovo as one of the brands that have revolutionized the global IT industry with its innovative products. “We are proud of our exclusive partnership with Lenovo which gives us the sole right to operate and manage its very first brand shop in Nigeria. It is indeed an honor to be so recognized by a brand as big as Lenovo, and I believe the partnership will be beneficial to both parties in the long run,” he said.
