Featuring numerous branches, Checkers remains one of South Africa’s biggest retail chain stores. And with its growing range of products, shoppers have more options than just drinks and dog food.
Aiding in Checkers’ popularity in South Africa is its value-packed website. Here is where potential shoppers can scope out the latest specials and discounts, whether it’s for baby products, food and drink, or electronics.
And since so many people in South Africa rely on Checkers for their grocery shopping, its online presence has evolved wonderfully to include additional help. Like the recipe section making use of Checkers’ world-class food products. And how the site allows you to view products’ ingredients and availability, as well as similar/recommended items. And don’t forget about the Store Locator that helps with branch addresses and directions, operating hours, the availability of LiquorShops or MediRite pharmacies, and much more.
Speaking of which, remember to check the newest Checkers catalogue online to stay updated with promotions, competitions, and various customer perks.
The origins of Checkers
1956 was when the first Checkers opened in South Africa in Mayfair, Johannesburg. Since then, the Checkers brand has continued to not only impress, but also evolve. Like when it went from three stores to 85 nationally in the 60s. Or when Checkers introduced the first card payment system in the 80s.
Today, Checkers continues to provide unique grocery promotions and specials in South Africa, Botswana, and Namibia. And shoppers seemingly can’t get enough of its in-store services that enhance the shopping experience, including the option to pay utility bills, transfer money, purchase lotto tickets, etc.
Checkers regulars know that the brand is not just about providing multiple shopping options, but also to boost customer convenience. That’s where Checkers’ customer perks come in, making it possible for South Africans to enjoy even more specials and promotions.
