Shoprite Douglas was the first store in the Isle of Man to install a bar-code scanning system at their tills and the Shoprite group was the first supermarket chain in the British Isles to install bar-code scanning systems in all their stores in the early 1980s.

Its major competitors are Tesco (one store in Douglas) and Manx Co-op (ten supermarkets, mostly convenience stores, across the Isle of Man).[8]

It has trading relationships with brands and partners such as Sainsbury's,[9]and previously Waitrose and Iceland (UK discount supermarket chain),[10] Subway,[11] Cook (UK frozen ready meal supplier),[12] Peacocks (UK "value" fashion retailer),[13] and Lloyds Pharmacy (UK pharmacy chain).[14]

In 2020, it announced a new long term strategic partnership with Sainsbury's supermarkets, the 2nd largest UK retailer, to sell Sainsburys products in Shoprite stores.
