Through the years supermarkets in the Shoprite stable have proved to be firm favourites with South African consumers. Consumers turn in increasing numbers to the Group’s three supermarket chains, and according to recent research from AMPS the Group’s chains are now being frequented by 71% of all South African shoppers. Since December 2013, the retailer created 13 183 new jobs. It currently employs just under 130 000 people.
