Brand Overview

Checkers is the first South African supermarket to launch a pet shop with a great range of products at supermarket prices.


“We saw a gap in the market when it came to pet care and following the great customer response to the first Petshop Science, we've been hard at work rolling out more specialist pet shops. Our aim has always been to bring customers everything their four-legged companions could want and need - at supermarket prices.”

- Willem Hunlun, COO of Checkers
