Nosh Continues Rapid Expansion…Opens Eighth Store

Hot on the heels of opening in Mt Maunganui, Nosh Food Market opens its eighth store on Constellation Drive in Auckland’s North Shore this coming Tuesday (13 Nov).

Nosh co-founder and director Clinton Beuvink says there has been plenty of demand from North Shore shoppers for a Nosh store.

“We have had a lot of feedback from ‘the shore’ asking when we’d be opening a branch there so we’re delighted to have Constellation Drive ready in time for the busy summer season.”

He says New Zealanders are sophisticated consumers who are now demanding a better quality of food retailing which is fuelling demand for greater competition.

“It strengthens the category and consumers are the winners – they have more choice on where they can shop and are no longer dictated to by the big supermarkets. We are giving consumers what they want and more.”

The store stocks a range of global brand names such as Waitrose and also includes a Black Rock Butchery (winner of the Ham of the Year 2012) on site bakery, fruit and vegetables seafood and much more.

Constellation Drive is Nosh’s second franchise store, jointly owned with Jo and Simon Jamieson who have a background in food and retail businesses including a café and catering outlet, video stores and a telecoms franchise.

The Jamiesons contacted Nosh after reading in the media that the company was interested in pursuing a growth strategy involving the owner-operator model and say they’re “stoked” with the Constellation Drive location.

“It’s smack bang in the middle of a large residential and commercial catchment area and very close to the motorway. Plus we’re bringing up to 40 new jobs to the area – it just has a good community feel about it,” Mr Jamieson says.

Nosh will extend its VIP member scheme to the new store. A Nosh VIP-only morning on Tuesday features special deals, food tastings and demonstrations by My Kitchen Rules stars Simon and Meg. The store is open to the general public from midday.

Customers who spend $75 or more on opening day receive an exclusive free goody bag (while stocks last).
