Shoprite – Africa’s largest retail supermarket with 3,152 stores in Africa – also launched its very first clothing store, UNIQ, at the Canal Walk shopping center in Cape Town on Thursday.
Another eight stores will soon go into the Ballito Junction and Galleria shopping centers in KwaZulu-Natal, the Secunda shopping center in Mpumalanga, the Table Bay shopping center in the Western Cape, as well as [email protected]The Grove, Chartwell Corner and the Menlyn shopping center in Gauteng open their doors.
The UNIQ clothing store caters for the whole family and concentrates especially on basic items in a variety of colors and materials that can be mixed and matched.
Prices vary from less than R80 for children’s T-shirts, to almost R900 for jackets.
According to Shoprite, UNIQ is also the first clothing store in South Africa to use self-service checkouts. Advanced radio frequency identification allows customers to easily scan items and then pay for them.
The self-service check-out machines are also expected to speed up the purchasing process, allowing staff to focus on other priorities in the store.
Each store will still create at least nine jobs and the staff will still be available to help shoppers.
