Shoprite and Checkers stores have an exciting range of consumer leaflets to keep their customers informed about aspects concerning a better and healthier lifestyle. The leaflets provide valuable information on a variety of topical issues such as health care, consumer information, as well as a recipe range.
The latest leaflet in the health care range was created in association with the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) to promote their annual Cuppa for Cansa campaign and is aptly titled “Be a friend to a cancer survivor”. Research has shown that, in addition to early detection, treatment and care, a positive outlook and support from family and friends play an important role in a cancer survivor’s recovery. The leaflet addresses some of the challenges faced by cancer survivors with advice and suggestions as to how each one of us can support and bring hope to those fighting the disease.
The Shoprite Checkers supermarket group is proud to be the main sponsor of Cuppa for CANSA, a nationwide initiative hosted by volunteers, partners and members of the public who want to raise awareness and funds for CANSA and show their support for its mission to fight cancer and save lives. Shoprite and Checkers facilitates Cuppa for Cansa events in its stores countrywide during June and donates the proceeds of all in-store Cuppa events to CANSA to benefit its prevention programmes and patient care services around the country. In 2007 Shoprite Checkers raised more than R640 000 that was donated towards the expansion of CANSA’s cancer control services into under-serviced communities
The Shoprite Checkers consumer leaflets demonstrate the supermarket group’s commitment to care for the communities they operate in. The group believes an informed consumer is a better consumer, and aims to provide information and hints on a range of topics that touches the average South African shopper daily.
Next time you visit a Shoprite, Checkers or Checkers Hyper store, remember to visit the consumer board where the latest consumer leaflets are displayed. Electronic versions of the leaflets are also available in the Customer Care section of this web site.
