The mobile app allows for the delivery of groceries and drinks 'at the touch of a button'. The app focuses on offering the same value for money that Checkers aims to associate with. Users are able to track the status of their order and delivery in real-time.

"Sixty60 will offer convenience because it does all the hard work for you," says Neil Schreuder, chief of innovation and strategy at Shoprite Checkers. "In our time-pressed society, providing consumers with a swift, on-demand grocery delivery service is like giving them back time — today's most precious commodity."

Checkers reports that, following months of testing the Sixty60 app with its own employees, the app is now being piloted to the public in select locations in Cape Town and Sandton.

"The name Sixty60 captures the service's main ambition, which is to allow customers to order groceries in 60 seconds and have them delivered in as little as 60 minutes," concludes Schreuder.

Products on the Sixty60 app retail at the same prices found in Checkers stores. Delivery is free for the time being during the pilot period. Sixty60 is currently available to the public in Checkers supermarkets in the Western Cape, including:
  • Durbanville
  • Willowbridge
  • Okavango Crossing
  • Rondebosch
  • Kloof Street
  • Sea Point
The service will also be available to customers in Melrose and Bryanston in Gauteng. Sixty60's beta app is now available for download on the App Store and Google Play Store.
