the best retail store that cares about its employees and so far pays well and also give free lunches every fridays and a medical aid that is approved by the best private clinics and hospitals and its very reasonable.it also gives uniform you dont have to buy them and they also have a good relationship with the SACCAWU union so there are no discriminations and employees are treated fairly.we also have annual trips to various regions in the country to meet fellow employees.the bakery and deli prepares fresh food every morning so they absolutely sell fresh food and vegetables on a daily basis. employees can also get food that is left for the day at a reasonable price so it sure cares for its employees.
