Shoprite Group Plc. is a supermarket chain currently trading in the Isle of Man. Its major competitors are Tesco and the Manx Co-op.

Shoprite currently owns 12 stores in all the major settlements on the Island. Three in Douglas, two in Peel, two in Ramsey, three in Port Erin (the Port Erin store has just (April July 2011) undergone a major restructure and facelift that now includes a Subway Café instore which is the only one of it's kind in Europe) there is one store in Onchan and one in Castletown. Two of the Port Erin stores are branded differently the one being Guiltless Gourmet (which became an Iceland store in May 2011, It is so far the only Iceland supermarket to exist on the Isle of Man) and the other Shoprite Living (stocking Wilkinson products). One of the Douglas stores trades as Winerite.

Shoprite is the only store on the Isle of Man to be contracted with Iceland, Subway and Wilkinson (Shoprite Living).

The chain is not related to similarly named chains in the US or South Africa.

Until the 1990s there were "Shoprite" supermarkets in the United Kingdom, when they were taken over by and re-branded as Kwik Save, itself now a defunct chain having been taken over by Somerfield. Somerfield, in turn has now been taken over by The Co-operative Group, and all of its stores will be converted to The Co-operative Food branding within the next couple of years.
