Checkers Sixty60 is the most downloaded grocery app in South Africa
The Shoprite Group announced that its Checkers Sixty60 on-demand grocery delivery app has had more than 1.5 million downloads since it launched.
The SA retailer noted that this means that it is the most downloaded app in that category.
“Consumer response on both counts has been unrivalled, with the Xtra Savings Rewards Programme signing up over 20 million members and Checkers Sixty60 becoming the number one grocery app in the country with over 1.5 million app downloads,” Engelbrecht wrote.
The service now operates nationwide from 233 retail outlets and there are now more than 15 000 products available on the Sixty60 app with carefully curated ‘shopping missions’ to ensure a quick and convenient user experience.
“We’ve spoken often about the next era of growth for Shoprite being about precision retailing and that future is now here,” he said.
The retailer also noted that the Checkers Sixty60 on-demand delivery service allowed it to create 2 870 new jobs within this department alone and this illustrates the Group’s ability to create jobs alongside technology innovation.
Checkers Sixty60 launched another South African supermarket first earlier this year, when it introduced a recycling initiative for its popular brown paper bags. Shoppers can now return their used paper bags to Checkers with the Sixty60 driver the next time they receive a delivery.
