Mainly located inside selected Group Supermarkets, Medirite provides accessible and affordable healthcare to customers across all income levels. To date, there are more than 140 in-store dispensaries trading in South Africa as well as other African countries, and the Group has also opened several standalone stores known as Medirite Plus.

Brand overview

The first Medirite began trading in Checkers Hyper Brackenfell in 1999, marking the Group’s entry in the medical services and supplies industries. Today, there are more than 140 in-store dispensaries; the aim to bring better and more affordable healthcare to the public is being realised.

Conveniently located inside selected Group supermarkets and supported by the Group’s pharmaceutical wholesaler, Transpharm, Medirite is well positioned to meet the growing need for easily accessible and affordable healthcare. Many Medirite pharmacies are located in previously disadvantaged communities where pharmaceutical services were unavailable.

Medirite is a designated service provider and preferred partner to most medical aids, which means customers can conveniently fill their chronic and scheduled prescriptions while doing their grocery shopping. Medirite also offers wellness screenings that are covered by most medical aids.

The standalone Medirite Plus store format is a one-stop health and wellness destination with affordable and accessible products.
