Shoprite Holdings Ltd in Retailing

Company Profile

About This Report

Mar 2012

Shoprite Holdings Ltd has successfully increased sales and profits ahead of the retailing industry in South Africa thanks to an extensive brand portfolio and low retail prices. The company’s operations in Africa are profitable despite the high cost of operations and currency fluctuations. Wal-Mart’s entry into South Africa will be the main challenge to Shoprite’s future performance in its home market and, increasingly, across the region as a whole.
