Checkers on Monday, and just in time for Black Friday, announced its on-demand grocery delivery service that promises to deliver within an hour.
It’s powered by an app called Sixy60, through which users can order their food, track the status of their order, and follow the delivery in real time.
Think of its as Uber Eats for your groceries, except products listed cost the same as the products in stores. Delivery is also free. For now.
Checkers also only accepts card-based payments through Sixty60, so there’s no cash-on-delivery option available.
“The name Sixty60 captures the service’s main ambition: for customers to order groceries in sixty seconds and have them delivered in as little as sixty minutes,” said Neil Schreuder, Checkers’ chief of innovation and strategy.
While the app is still in its testing phase, it’s currently available to try out in limited areas across Sandton and Cape Town.
- For Cape Town: Durbanville, Willowbridge, Okavango Crossing, Rondebosch, Kloof Street and Sea Point.
- For Sandton: Melrose and Bryanston.
