New World Milford to re-open on Tuesday 3 May

Auckland, New Zealand, 2016-Apr-11 — /EPR Retail News/ — The scaffolding is being packed away and the finishing touches are being completed on New World Milford, as the eagerly anticipated replacement supermarket gets ready to re-open on Tuesday 3 May at 8.15am.

“We are thrilled to be able to bring back New World to Milford” says Tony Catton, Foodstuffs North Island Acting General Manager, Property Development.  “After the old store was demolished in March 2015, we have had incredible support and interest from the local community for when the new supermarket would be completed.  Milford New World opened in 1964 and was the first New World branded store in Auckland; so after 50 years we thought it was time to update the store to provide our loyal customers with an exciting new supermarket full of natural light and lovely wide aisles in which to do their shopping.”

New World Milford will employ 90 staff and has a total gross floor area of 2,340sqm providing 40 percent more retail space than the old store, meaning plenty of space to accommodate a fantastic fresh food offer.

Sarah Aston, owner-operator of New World Milford is especially looking forward to re-opening the new supermarket.

“I can’t wait to open the doors and welcome our customers back. This is a heritage supermarket that is going to look completely different and new. It will be a fantastic store, with an even greater array of fresh food, an exciting new look deli, a mouth-watering bakery and a top-end butchery.  Having New World Milford on the Shore again means much more choice, great prices and the qualified, friendly, personal service that our customers expect and deserve,” says Aston.

The supermarket, located at 141 Kitchener Rd, Milford, will be officially opened on Tuesday 3 May 2016 at 8.15am by the Hon Maggie Barry, MP for North Shore.  Members of the public are welcome to attend the opening and be amongst the first people to see all the exciting changes at New World Milford.
