Virtual Grocery Vouchers
The COVID-19 pandemic did not only pose a threat to South African consumers’ safety, but also left many communities in South Africa destitute and in need of food and basic goods. In reaction to these needs, the Group launched virtual grocery vouchers in 2020. These vouchers are bought electronically and sent straight to the recipient’s cellphone, allowing customers to assist those in need remotely.
Vouchers can be bought online via Computicket or in-store. Upon receiving the voucher, it can immediately be redeemed at any Checkers, Checkers Hyper, Shoprite or Usave store nationwide – there is no waiting period.
