Shoprite currently owns 12 supermarkets in the major towns of the Isle of Man. These stores are branded Shoprite and Little Shoprite. Shoprite stores are located in Douglas, Peel, Ramsey, Port Erin, Onchan and Castletown. Little Shoprite stores are in Castletown, Port Erin, Peel and Ramsey. One of the Douglas stores trades as Winerite Extra.
Shoprite Douglas was the first store in the Isle of Man to install a bar-code scanning system at their tills and the Shoprite group was the first supermarket chain in the British Isles to install bar-code scanning systems in all their stores in the early 1980s.
It has long standing trading relationships with major FMCG brands such as Waitrose (UK supermarket chain), Iceland (UK discount supermarket chain), Subway (US owned fast food franchise, currently the largest in the world), Cook (UK frozen ready meal supplier), Peacocks (UK "value" fashion retailer), and Lloyds Pharmacy (UK pharmacy chain).
It has recently introduced a Home from Waitose into both of its Douglas stores. In addition the Shoprite Town Centre store in Douglas has also a Waitrose Mini Baby and Child clothing range.
The company slogan is "The Difference Every Day" and has been one of the leading supporters of the Isle of Man Food and Drink industry.
