JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – THE Shoprite Group reported it had this week created 820 new job opportunities with the opening of 14 new stores across different provinces in South Africa.
The Group is rated South Africa’s largest private sector employer and reported the creation of 6 027 new jobs in the 2017 financial year.
The trend is set to continue with a total of 82 new Shoprite, Checkers, Checkers Hyper, Usave and LiquorShop supermarkets scheduled to open in the 2018 financial year, compared to the 72 new supermarkets opened in 2017.
Chief Executive Officer, Pieter Engelbrecht, said over the past year 2,4 percent more customers voted with their feet and wallets to buy at our stores and we processed over 1 billion transactions.
“This proves that we are giving our customers what they need at prices they can afford,” he said.
The new stores opened in Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo, Mpumalanga, Northern Cape and Western Cape are positioned in areas not previously served by the group’s supermarkets or in those showing strong population growth.
