Auckland, New Zealand, 2016-Dec-21 — /EPR Retail News/ — New World Hutt City re-opens at 1 pm Tuesday 20 December, 2016 and will be operating as usual with great products and awesome service. The Williams family want to say thanks to patient customers and fantastic staff. The Williams family, owner-operators of New World Hutt City just want to say thanks for the support, best wishes and patience from customers and staff alike. “We had so many customers who have saved their Christmas shop for us, so we’re expecting to be really busy over the next few days,” says Steve Williams.
For the last few days the New World team has been running a pop-up supermarket in the car park to ensure that customers could stock up on essentials at this busy time. “It was such an innovative way to keep our customers happy and the store staff busy,” says Chris Quin, CEO Foodstuffs North Island. “It took some doing, but it’s a model we could now run elsewhere should we need to – fingers crossed we don’t!”
The pop-up closed for good at 8 pm on Monday 19 December and the New World Hutt City store re-opens for business as usual from 1 pm, Tuesday 20 December – in plenty of time for locals to get sorted for Christmas.
“We know there are other businesses still affected by the demolition and we absolutely feel for them – it has really impacted our team and customers. We’re thankful for the support we’ve had from Council who have worked collaboratively with us. If there is any way we can help other people in the same boat – we’re happy to,” says Steve.
New World Hutt City normal operating hours are 7 am to 10 pm, seven days. The supermarket will be closed on Christmas Day, but is otherwise open for business through the festive season and what is hoped by all will be a great summer.
