Customers can look forward to a unique shopping experience at Checkers Blue Crane, including a Meat Market with free range chicken and restaurant-quality steak; a bakery with artisan breads and cakes; fresh fruit, vegetables and flowers; a sushi bar; a Foreign Ground coffee bar; exclusive private label brands such as Forage and Feast and Simple Truth as well as a Money Market counter.

The store is managed by Alberton resident Liam Lorning, who joined Checkers in 2012 as a Trainee Manager.
