What we do
The Shoprite Group of Companies, comprising several iconic brands, is the largest retailer in Africa. It started out as a group of eight grocery stores in 1979, and has grown into a technologically-advanced, continent-wide business selling items from food, liquor and medicine, to concert tickets and furniture.
Today the Group is at the forefront of retail innovation. It operates thousands of stores in 15 countries, has a network of high-tech automated distribution centres, and employs more than 147,000 people.
Although most know the Group for its supermarket brands Shoprite and Checkers, its businesses span the retail and consumer sector. At its core, the Shoprite Group is a fast-paced, technologically-advanced company that’s been innovating in the retail space for more than four decades - and the systems it has in place are on a par with the world’s most advanced retail groups.
We believe that teamwork, career development, promoting from within and job security are foundations of a great workplace
