The Shoprite Group’s standalone apparel brand UNIQ clothing by Checkers opened two new stores in Gauteng this week – one in Sandton City Shopping Centre, and another at the brand-new Linton’s Mall in Pretoria East – making it the 20th store opened since UNIQ launched in 2023.  

Known for its timeless designs and premium fabrics, the brand offers unparalleled quality and fashion that transcends trends. Stores offer an elevated shopping experience with well-trained employees and quick self-service checkout. 

Customers can create the perfect capsule wardrobe with pieces from the new Autumn/Winter ‘24 collection that’s just landed in all stores. Every item of clothing is thoughtfully designed and made to last, ultimately giving customers more value for their money.

UNIQ clothing by Checkers was the first local retailer to introduce the superior-quality Pima cotton, SUPIMA, to the mass market. This season, the brand adds another superb material to its collection - 100% Merino wool - which is softer and more refined than regular wool. Its fine fibres are gentle to the touch, lightweight but warm, and will not irritate the skin.

The new collection consists of comfy knitwear, durable outerwear and an extensive range of tees that can be layered with wardrobe favourites to create stunning chilly-weather outfits for the entire family: 

  • Statement transitional pieces such as the effortlessly chic women’s trench coat (R1 299), and the sleek men’s shacket (R699), which is available in a range of colours. 
  • Men’s and women’s knitwear, including basic jumpers (from R299) and premium 100% Merino wool jumpers (from R549).
  • The season’s must-have raincoats (R999) providing protection from the wind and rain. 
  • An extensive collection of long-sleeve T-shirts (priced from R159) in a variety of silhouettes and styles – from fitted to longline, boxy, and dry-feel pocket. 
  • Kids’ (ages 3 – 13) long-sleeve tees, puffer jackets, jumpers, and joggers in warm autumn tones and cosy fabrics, including heavyweight cotton, brushed fleece and wool to keep little ones toasty.
  • The store also stocks an all-year-round core range of premium basics, including socks, underwear and sleepwear.
