African Foods & Gifts

Comments

Marlene Nah opened African Foods & Gifts in the Crystal Shopping Center six years ago and added a deli and restaurant to the store before the pandemic. Nah says she puts an emphasis on her customers’ personal preferences. “We go beyond the cassava leaf and potato grains and we talk a little about family,” said Nah. “We make it a point to remember their names, remember their preferences.”
Marlene Nah is an amazing Affinity Plus member and business owner! Her store, African Foods & Gifts, is known especially for its local, African and international cuisines. Yum!

But running a business is no easy task, especially during the last year and a half with the pandemic. Learn more about Marlene’s story and how she kept her store up and running. We couldn’t be more honored to share her story with you during National Black Business Month: https://bit.ly/3BaRaW4
