A couple of weeks back, I had to pop into town to Makro (my worst) to pick up something that was on special. It was not a “town day” so Mom (yes, Mom was still visiting) and I were not much in the mood for driving around to get a few odds and ends and went to the centre across the road where there is a Checkers. Well! Was I impressed! Remember I am a Woolies girl. The store was super sparkly clean, incredibly neat, which works for my OCD issues and the shelves were perfectly packed – almost as if they used a ruler. Even better than all of this was their prices!
My kitties soft food sachets were R1.20 cheaper – which is a great saving, seeing that I go through 2 sachets a day. I also checked the expiry dates just to make sure and these had just been manufactured a couple of weeks ago.
They had this lovely stainless steel microplane grater/zester for only R19,99 – can you believe it. Haven’t had the opportunity to use it yet though. Maybe tomorrow. 🙂
Aah, then there was the baking aisle – it was the best stocked aisle I have seen since being back home! They had the largest selection of everything from flour to cookie decorations, including these lovely cupcake wrappers which I have not been able to get anywhere else in PE.
Their fruit and veg was top quality and beautifully arranged – didn’t think of taking a picture at the time – sorry.
Their meat selection was very impressive and we picked up these very reasonably priced steaks for R59.97 a kilo. These 2 inch steaks made their way to our bellies the same day and a couple more into the freezer for a braai soon!
Are all Checkers stores this good? What is the Checkers like in your area?
