Innovation is the key to keeping Shoprite prepared for the lockdown
The Shoprite Group recently launched a number of innovative online services to make life during lockdown easier, but the good news is that they will remain beyond lockdown.
Below is a list of these innovations helping Shoprite and Checkers customers.
1. Virtual Vouchers
South Africans who wish to reach out and help those in need can now purchase a virtual grocery voucher.
This secure, technology-based solution provides food assistance quickly, efficiently and directly.
Virtual vouchers can be bought from Computicket and are sent via SMS to a recipient’s mobile phone within an hour of being purchased.
The vouchers are valid for three years and can be redeemed at any Shoprite, Checkers or Usave supermarket nationwide.
2. Medicine Delivery
Checkers has teamed up with Mr D Food to deliver medicine to its MediRite pharmacy customer’ homes.
Just phone your nearest MediRite pharmacy (available in selected Checkers stores), place an order and pay for it via EFT, debit card or medical aid.
Go to the Mr D Food app, select “MediRite order for delivery” and place the delivery order. Be sure to follow the delivery tracking updates, as Mr D Food is only able to make the delivery once.
3. Grocery Delivery
Given the surge in demand for online shopping, Checkers now offers customers three different delivery services:
Sixty60 delivers groceries at the touch of a button at the same value for money for which Checkers is renowned. Plus with a standard delivery fee of just R35, Sixty60 offers better value than any other grocery delivery service in South Africa.
The Sixty60 app is available for download on the App Store and Google Play Store.
2. Sixty60 Boxed
Sixty60 Boxed is an additional service, offering bulk same-day delivery of groceries and household supplies. It is a collaboration between Sixty60 and CFS, servicing selected parts of the Western Cape and Gauteng including Stellenbosch, Paarl, Centurion, Pretoria North and Pretoria East.
3. Checkers Food Services (CFS)
Customers can also order groceries for home delivery in selected areas of the Western Cape and Gauteng through Checkers Food Services (CFS. Delivery is free, but a minimum order value of R1 000 is applicable.
