Work commences on New World 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.

 

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.
