Stores are evaluated and graded based on the range of products and services they provide to customers. This grading considers factors such as the variety and quality of items available, the convenience of the store's location, and its overall appeal to shoppers.

Essentially, it's a way to assess the comprehensiveness and attractiveness of a store's offerings to help consumers make informed choices about where to shop.

In a conversation with Fredrick Mwinda, the salesperson at Woermann Brock Klein Windhoek, he mentions that the store rebranded to an A store.

“It is an A store, the rebrand was to give A store a different look from our Family store but yet they are all Woermann Brock, the only difference is that the offerings we have within the store is as per our consumers demand”.

The Woermann Brock branch in Khomasdal is recognized as a family store, and the one situated in Katutura Monte Cristo operates under the Woermann Brock Usave banner.

Note: We do not take specials or loyalty card discounts into consideration. When we do find certain goods on special, for example, “Get N$10.00 off when buying 18 (medium) eggs and pay N$55.00”, we will log the price as N$65.00 to exclude the special.
