The Pick n Pay Group is one of Africa’s largest and most consistently successful retailers of food, clothing and general merchandise.
Pick n Pay is a family controlled business. Four small stores were purchased in 1967 and the Group was listed on the JSE Securities Exchange South Africa in 1968 (as Pick n Pay Stores Limited).
For four decades we have built a truly sustainable business. The growth and success of Pick n Pay is attribute to two fundamental principles -
* an unwavering belief in consumer sovereignty;
* the application of the “four legs of the table” principle.
These principles were put into practice at foundation, and continue to be the cornerstone of our business. We believe that in our application of these fundamentals, we are in effect preparing ourselves for sustainability.
The “four legs of the table” principle follows a simple analogy. The business is a table supported by four legs on top of which the consumer sites. Each leg needs to be equally strong in order for the table to remain balanced and upright. The four legs of the table are:
* Promotion and social responsibility
Each leg is equally important to the success and continued sustainability of the business. Each requires, and has received, equal focus and management support.
Sustainability businesses have an important role to play in building sustainable communities. This responsibility should be embraced: not only is it a philanthropic way to thinking, but it is also an act of enlightened self-interest. In our case, the more economic freedom pervades South African society, the more scope there will be for growth in the retail market. It is no surprise that our view is the same as it was at inception: big business must work together towards securing the economic security and social well being of generations to come.
We are a truly South African company and have always operated in the best interest of our people and our communities. As a company, Pick n Pay behaves instinctively according to an entrenched value system and we truly believe that we have a positive impact on the lives of all South Africans.
The Group operates through three divisions, the Retail Division, the Group Enterprises Division and Franklins Australia, each with their own managing director and management boards.
