The Cashier of The Year competition, is a newly established competition aimed at celebrating the most efficient, knowledgeable and passionate cashier at Drakes.

Drakes are proud of its people and recognise that our people on the shop floor are the back bone of the company. This competition allows us to celebrate the success of employees who battle it out on the retail stage each day. It will showcase the important role that cashiers have within the company and industry. Not only does a cashier process products through the register and receive payment, they are there to make the customers shopping experience an enjoyable one.

The role of a cashier was once seen as a temporary stepping stone in someone’s early working career, however this role has evolved into taking on the responsibility of creating a welcoming environment for our customers, catering to customers’ requests and requirements and having some knowledge of the products and services Drakes offer.

Over the years, we have built the business on our passion for providing exceptional customer service and believe this competition will raise the service levels even higher and set us well apart from our competitors in the industry. We are extremely proud of this competition. The Executive and Senior Management team have invested a huge amount of time and effort in developing this program and with their full support, I am proud and excited to conduct this competition that is unique to our business.

There is $21 000 worth of cash and prizes to be won, not to mention the glory of being awarded Drakes Cashier of the Year!
