Checkers is a FMCG retailer owned by Shoprite Holdings that operates in Southern Africa. Checkers currently has 26 Checkers Hypers and 159 Checkers supermarkets operating in Botswana, South Africa and Namibia. The supermarket chain focuses more strongly on fresh produce and offers a wider range of choice food items to a more affluent clientele (LSM 8-10). Norman Herber, the chair of Greatermans department stores, was the founder of Checkers. The firm was later expanded and made successful by Raymond Ackerman.
