About Us

Ever since Shoprite Holdings bought the Checkers supermarket chain in 1991, Checkers has become a regular shopping destination with over 197 stores across South Africa – including Checkers Hypers – and a few in Namibia.

At Checkers, we strive to give our customers an all-round better shopping experience – from ease of shopping, greater variety and innovative products to competitive prices and regular promotions. And how do we achieve this? By putting ourselves in our customers’ shoes to fully understand their wants, needs and expectations from their supermarket.

Better savings

At Checkers we understand that these economic times are trying. In fact, we know that maintaining one’s lifestyle can be expensive and, at times, difficult to do. That’s why we want South Africans to understand that there’s no need to change one’s lifestyle when shopping at Checkers because customers save every time they make a purchase at our stores.

Better quality

It’s not enough for us to offer a wide range of products, but rather a wide range of quality products. That’s why we offer things like restaurant-quality, Steakhouse Classic steaks; Certified Natural Lamb that’s free of added hormones and antibiotics; limited editions of famous wine brands in our Odd Bins range; hundreds of cheeses to choose from; the world’s finest coffees at supermarket prices; and more.

Better services

We want our customers to spend more time enjoying life, and less time shopping. That’s why we provide services in-store to allow our customers to get more done, faster. At our MoneyMarket counters, for example, customers can pay bills, buy electricity, book Computicket tickets, flights and more. Plus, with MediRite pharmacies, customers can collect their prescriptions before they even pay for their groceries.

And next door to some of our Checkers stores, customers can find an extensive range of top alcohol brands at supermarket prices at LiquorShop.

Better and better

We believe there is always room for improvement. That’s why we won’t stop searching for new and innovative ways to bring customers the products they want, at the prices they want. Keep your eyes on Checkers – better things are always on the horizon!
