The support of customers and their offers to help with clean-ups has been overwhelming.

“All of these efforts to re-open and rebuild our business and serve our communities in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng reflect the strength and resilience of our teams and our operations.

The Group has also been innovative in order to be able to continue to provide customers with essential goods, using alternatives such as container stores.

Shoprite Meadowlands, in Soweto, is one of 89 stores re-opened in the past three weeks.
It has sent its Usave eKasi trucks (mobile stores) into affected communities to ensure food security, and packed and distributed thousands of food hampers for people in need in affected communities.

The Group has also donated R1 million to the Shoprite Act For Change Fund for use by vetted organizations involved in relief efforts to help communities rebuild. The Fund is managed by the Group, on behalf of its customers, and all donations collected go to organizations working directly on relief efforts in the areas that need it most.
