In 1967 Raymond Ackerman bought four small grocery stores in Cape Town, which he then grew into a supermarket empire over the following decades. Today Pick n Pay is the second largest supermarket chain store in South Africa stocking customers’ groceries, clothing and other general goods.
The supermarket also trades in other regions of southern Africa, such as Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Namibia and Swaziland.
Pick n Pay employs many people and they work hard to be kind to the environment such as selling eco-friendly shopping bags and only selling sustainable fish.
