Which Mzansi supermarket offers unbeatable prices?



A number of South Africans face a daily challenge in coping with increases in the expenses associated with everyday life.

The South African website is seeking to help enrich the lives of our readers, because why should you be paying higher prices at one retailer when you can save a little somewhere else?

We’ve got you covered with the latest in our series of grocery basket price comparisons between four of South Africa’s favourite supermarkets.

Who will come out on top between Woolworths, CheckersShoprite and Pick n Pay?

Let’s delve into the cheapest groceries this week and the price fluctuation compared to last week.

Which one has the best prices?

Rank Supermarket This week Last week % change
1. Shoprite R717.84 R726.84 1.24% decrease
2. Pick n Pay R721.84 R721.84 0% increase
3. Checkers R732.84 R727.84 0.69%. increase

What’s in the grocery basket?

We’ve compared 16 common household items to establish which supermarket is offering the best prices – both on individual items and for the entire basket – this week.

To note

– We do not consider discounts or card-holder specials in this comparison.

– When the exact name-brand items are not available, we use the nearest alternative house-brand alternative (as stated at the bottom of this comparison)

– Due to fluctuations in prices both inland and at the coast in South Africa, the prices below are based on those payable in Gauteng
