Checkers launches deals onto its Sixty60 home delivery app – and continues to create jobs

Retailer Checkers says that customers using its Sixty60 home delivery service will now be able to benefit from its Xtra Savings rewards programme.

“Customers have been asking us to offer all of the Xtra Savings deals they love in our stores on the Sixty60 app and we have listened,” said Neil Schreuder, chief of innovation & strategy at the Shoprite Group.

“Checkers is proud to be the first supermarket in South Africa to offer fully integrated rewards benefits online. Customers can enjoy instant savings on thousands of products and personalised offers delivered to their door in just 60 minutes,” added Schreuder.

Checkers Sixty60 was made available in all nine provinces in South Africa earlier this year – after launching in Polokwane, Limpopo. The one-hour on-demand grocery delivery service launched in late 2019, just prior to the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, in early 2020.

It has been downloaded more than 1.9-million times in less than two years since its launch.

“This latest enhancement is designed to make saving money on groceries even more convenient at a time when customers need it more than ever,” the group said. Sixty60 users can link their Xtra Savings card to their profile in the app and immediately take advantage of personalised deals.

Checkers, inclusive of Checkers Hyper, operates from 268 stores in South Africa, while Checkers Sixty60 has rapidly expanded to over 261 stores, and has created over 4,100 new jobs – up from 800 a little over a year ago.

Shoprite is the largest private employer in South Africa, employing in excess of 142,600 people, 30,000 of which work within the Checkers brand.
