The Shoprite Group opened four new stores across three provinces between 27 and 29 April 2021.
Positioned in areas not previously served by the Group’s supermarkets or in those showing strong population growth, the four new stores are:
- Checkers Jukskei Park (Johannesburg, Gauteng)
- Shoprite Rustenburg Mall (Rustenburg, North West)
- Checkers Rustenburg Mall (Rustenburg, North West)
- Shoprite Ekhaya Mall (Secunda, Mpumalanga)
In spite of a difficult 12 months for many local businesses and with a record 7.2 million unemployed people in South Africa, the Shoprite Group has continued to open new supermarkets, ensuring job security for its employees.
The four new stores employ almost 550 employees. With more than 140 000 employees, the Shoprite Group is South Africa’s largest private sector employer.
