The Shoprite Group is making it easier for its customers to access services such as global money transfers, cellphone purchases, bill payments, tickets and insurance with the launch of its new k’nect stores across the country.
Following the successful launch of the first Shoprite k’nect at the Delft Mall in Cape Town on 27 May 2019, the Group is opening another six stores between end July and mid-August 2019. The new k’nect stores will be located in Hatfield, Rosebank, Riverside Mall, Mmabatho, Watergate Mall and Illanga Mall.
Several more Shoprite k’nect stores are scheduled to open by December 2019 and promise to offer convenience and expert knowledge on a range of affordable products and services to the Group’s tech-savvy, connected customers.
Each store includes specialist tills for those transactions that take a little longer, including money transfers (local and international), tickets (travel & events), insurance and cellular (devices and accessories).
Express tills cater for quick transactions, including bill payments (accounts and bills), airtime & data (top-up and recharge) as well as buying electricity and Lotto tickets.
Shoprite k'nect is about putting customers first. Bye-bye ordinary, hello amazing!
