Over 200 Shoprite group stores looted

Facebook


Shoprite Holdings has revealed that just over 200 of the group’s stores in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng were affected by the looting and vandalism in the two provinces last week.

Most of the stores affected were within its SA supermarkets division, but its liquor, furniture and distribution centres were also impacted, largely in KZN which saw the brunt of the unrest and incidents of arson.

Of the group’s 1 189 supermarkets trading under the Shoprite, Usave, Checkers and Checkers Hyper banners in South Africa, 119 stores were severely impacted as a result of looting and/or fire damage.

The Shoprite Group says 54 of its LiquorShop stores were impacted while its Freshmark distribution centre in Durban was also looted.

Operational capacity was fully restored at the distribution centre on Sunday.
