“We are thrilled to have found the perfect venue for this store concept and have fine-tuned the product offering to appeal to and serve all our customers in the area. With this new Checkers supermarket, we have also created employment in the area at a critical time, given the high unemployment levels, with a staff complement of 71 including 51 women.”

- Willem Hunlun, COO of Checkers



The store is managed by Shaun Adams, who joined the retailer 12 years ago as a retail student and was fresh foods manager at Checkers Tokai.
