The specialist areas include small electrical and homeware products, books, magazines, CDs and DVDs. There is also a Sierra café in the supermarket foyer.

“It will be a pleasurable shopping experience as well as people benefiting from PAK’n SAVE’s ongoing policy of providing New Zealand’s lowest prices,” says Mr Street.
