SHOPRITE FIRST TO SELL VAT-FREE SANITARY PADS

Shoprite has taken note of the financial strain that many South Africans are currently facing following the recent VAT and fuel price increases, amongst others. In an effort to ease some of the financial pressure associated with access to basic menstrual hygiene products, Shoprite will be selling its Ultrex sanitary pads VAT-free from Monday 13 August 2018.

Shoprite will be absorbing the cost of VAT across its range of Ultrex pads so that consumers don’t have to. This is not a short-term promotion, but a commitment by Shoprite to provide its customers with greater access to affordable basic hygiene products and necessities.

All sanitary pads in the Ultrex range will now be retailing for R10.99. This applies to both the Ultra Plus (10 pads) and Ultra Slim (12 pads) packs.
