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.

New Zealand: New World begins construction works for its new store in Papakura

Work has commenced on the latest New World store at the corner of East Street and Wood Street in Papakura, which means shoppers can look forward to a brand new supermarket in the not too distant future.

Auckland, New Zealand, 2016-Feb-24 — /EPR Retail News/ — Tony Catton, Foodstuffs North Island Ltd, Acting General Manager Property Development, is excited that the Papakura community will soon have a new store to purchase their grocery and household items.

“The existing New World opened in 1982 so it is about time the local community had a new store with plenty of natural light to enjoy their shopping. Construction of the approximately 3,000m2 store, which is just across the road from the existing store, is already under way.”

The new supermarket will have a fresh bakery, butchery, deli and seafood counter, and a large range of fresh food and grocery products.

“New World Papakura will be well placed to meet its customers evolving needs well into the future with its planned fresh offer and extensive grocery range,” says Catton.

The store will also include sustainability features such as CO2 refrigeration, LED lighting and rainwater harvesting which ensure the long-term carbon footprint is minimised.

“Outside shoppers will have access to 158 car parks so even when the store is at its busiest parking shouldn’t be an issue,” adds Catton.

Peter Lynch, the current owner of New World Papakura since 2013 is excited about the new store.

“I’ve loved being part of the Papakura community with the current New World, and I’m excited to be a part of the new store. With the new supermarket under construction just over the road, we are able to watch with anticipation as the store takes shape. I am thrilled to be able to bring a brand new store to my customers and the wider Papakura community. Being able to provide an even greater range of fresh and everyday products from the new store will be just fantastic,” says Lynch.

In the meantime the current New World located on East Street will be open and continue to provide customers with usual service until the new store is ready to open.
