South Africa’s first 60-minute grocery delivery service from a supermarket chain launched in November 2019 and in less than 12 months Sixty60 has become a household name thanks to its unrivaled convenience and speed of delivery.
The Covid-19 pandemic heightened the demand for online grocery shopping and order volumes skyrocketed during lockdown. To meet the increased demand for this service, Checkers rapidly expanded Sixty60 throughout the country, and has to date created over 1 000 new jobs. The Sixty60 service is currently available in over 100 stores and will be further extended to over 150 by year-end.
