| Shoprite Holdings Limited | Unaudited Group Results For The 26 Weeks to 27 December 2020

 

Pieter Engelbrecht, Chief Executive Officer
We are proud to report the Group’s sales increasing by 4.7% for the six months. Within that, our core Supermarkets RSA segment, representing 78.0% of Group sales, increased sales by 5.6%. Adjusting for the closure of our RSA LiquorShop business as a result of nationwide COVID-19 lockdown regulations, our Supermarkets RSA
business grew sales by 7.8%. This is an incredible result given that our customer base spans the entire South African food retail spectrum. Our South African supermarkets’ internal selling price inflation of 4.3% for the six months reflects our unwavering commitment to our customers on price. In true Shoprite style, it was a collective effort
across our Shoprite, Usave, Checkers and Checkers Hyper banners and the team is to be commended. The Supermarkets RSA business has achieved 22 months of uninterrupted market share gains and in the six months to 27 December 2020, the Group created a total of 4 305 new jobs.
