Monday, 13 September 2021

Foodstuffs stores continue to provide New Zealanders with their essential food and groceries in safe shopping environments, following government’s announcement this afternoon that there is no change to the Alert Levels around the country.

As announced, Auckland will remain in Alert Level 4 and the rest of the country will remain in Alert Level 2 until 11.59pm on Tuesday 21 September.

New World, PAK’nSAVE and Four Square stores nationwide remain 100% committed to ensuring New Zealanders have their grocery needs met. Stores are well-stocked and our stringent cleaning and hygiene protocols remain in place while we continue to fight the Delta outbreak.

As per government advice, under Alert Level 4 and Alert Level 2 it continues to be mandatory to wear a face covering when shopping at our stores. 

We encourage everyone to always scan the COVID tracer app, maintain the 2m social distance, nominate one person in the household to shop and ask a friend or neighbour to shop on your behalf if you are feeling unwell.

Customer numbers continue to be restricted, so please be patient as you wait to shop for groceries. We want to remind everyone to please continue to #shopnormal so there are enough groceries for others.

We thank you for your understanding and cooperation to ensure both our customers and essential team members are kept safe

Please be patient, considerate and kind and we’ll continue to get through this together. 

Kia kaha.
