Following the update from Civil Defence and the announcement by the Prime Minister at 4pm we are pleased to confirm all tsunami warnings have now been cancelled and all stores have reopened.

The Government has confirmed that as of 6.00am Sunday morning Auckland will return to Alert Level 2 and the rest of the country will move to Alert Level 1 – this will be reviewed by cabinet at the end of next week. Customers can expect to see the usual Alert Level 2 protocols in place across our Auckland supermarkets and a return to normal shopping throughout the rest of the country.
