Therefore it is with pride that we present the New Generation Pick n Pay Wernhil store, where we create a modern, friendly environment as we serve our customers with passion. Our customers love the new layout, the space, as well as the innovation in products and packaging and when they walk into the store they feel welcomed by the new ambient and fresh look and feel, making their shopping experience even more enjoyable.”
