Discounters in South Africa

Discounters in South Africa

With South Africa's economy struggling, many consumers remained price-conscious, and looked for the most affordable options when grocery shopping. This helped support the rapid rise of the discounters channel in the country during the review period, with retailers targeting underserved populations and low-income households in particular. Discounters are also expanding their private-label ranges and implementing loyalty programmes to suit their target audience's needs.

Euromonitor International's Discounters in South Africa report offers insight into key trends and developments driving the industry. The report examines all retail channels to provide sector insight. Channels include hypermarkets, supermarkets, discounters, convenience stores, mixed retailers, health and beauty retailers, clothing and footwear retailers, furniture and furnishing stores, DIY and hardware stores, durable goods retailers, leisure and personal goods retailers.
