Pak'N Save Continues To Offer New Zealand's Lowest-Priced Groceries

Supermarket chain offers the real deals

New Zealanders who want the lowest priced groceries simply need to continue to shop at Pak'N Save.

"We are pleased that the latest survey of supermarket prices by Consumer magazine shows that Pak'N Save continues to offer the best deal for kiwi shoppers," said Graham Douglass, general manager of the retail services at Foodstuffs Wellington. Pak'N Save is a member of the Foodstuffs group.

The Consumer survey of the 30 supermarket items most often bought by New Zealanders showed that Pak'N Save prices are the lowest in all of the main centers.

"Our commitment is to offer shoppers the best prices and once again we have delivered on that," said Mr Douglass.

"The Consumer survey only covers the 30 top-selling items across a range of categories and regular Pak'N Save shoppers know that as well as getting the lowest prices for those 30 items, they can make even greater savings when they purchase products from across our wider range of over 15,000 items."

Mr Douglass also noted that the Consumers Institute had conducted this year's survey twice, because of concern that prices might have been reduced ahead of its survey.

"Even with the survey conducted twice, Pak 'N Save is clearly offering the best bargains for New Zealand shoppers. If you want New Zealand's lowest overall food prices, shop at Pak'N Save," he said.
