Shoprite LiquorShop stores, which are always located near or adjacent to Group Supermarkets (Checkers and Shoprite), are relied on for a rich variety of wines, beers, and the Group’s unique House of Fine Whisky range.
About Shoprite LiquorShop
The Shoprite Group of Companies has the distinction of being the largest food retailer in Africa. It might be a few decades since the first store opened, but the Shoprite promise (to bring the lowest prices in quality food and essential home goods to its customers) still rings true, especially with the numerous wholesale Shoprite LiquorShop branches continuing to sell liquor and non-alcoholic beverages at supermarket prices.
The history of Shoprite LiquorShop
Operating in nearly 3,000 stores in 15 countries across the African continent, The Shoprite Group was established in 1979. The brand increasingly expanded across South Africa and its borders, opening the first store in Namibia in 1990. In 1998, the Group acquired the national Checkers chain, boosting the brand’s already successful growth.
Shoprite LiquorShop, an extension of the brand, started opening in 2005 to overwhelming positive support not only from South Africans, but also neighbouring countries where Shoprite LiquorShop also branched out (including Botswana, Mozambique, Lesotho and Namibia).
In 2019, the 500th store was opened, along with the first stand-alone wholesale Shoprite LiquorShop (which opened in Johannesburg).
Boosting the reputation of Shoprite LiquorShop considerably is the brand’s commitment to continuously provide a rich variety of unique alcoholic beverages. This includes local- and imported wines, well-known beers, and premium spirits. Clients also have access to the Shoprite Group’s House of Fine Whisky range: a spectacular choice of premium blends and single malts (still at supermarket prices) ideal for anybody wishing to become a whisky connoisseur.
But it’s not only Shoprite LiquorShop’s amazing range of products that keep South Africans going back for more. The Shoprite Group is well known for its innovative ideas to boost customer convenience. And that’s why a growing number of LiquorShops across the country has started offering click-and-collect services, in addition to food/drink deliveries by Mr D Food.
