Foodstuffs Opens Fifth Fuel Site at Timaru

Foodstuffs South Island has opened its fifth fuel site at PAK'nSAVE Timaru.

The Evans Street self-service fuel site joins those already on offer at PAK’nSAVE stores in Invercargill, Moorhouse (Christchurch), Dunedin and Blenheim.

Foodstuffs South Island chief executive Steve Andersons says the group is continuing to investigate other options for combining fuel sites with its PAK’nSAVE supermarkets given the convenience it offers customers.

“We know groceries are a big outlay for many families which is why PAK’nSAVE policy is to offer New Zealand’s lowest food prices. Petrol is another big weekly cost and we’re focused on providing customers with discounts on fuel whenever customers go through the check-outs. We also work hard with our relationship with Mobil to deliver petrol discounts regularly. We have deliberately chosen locations on State Highway 1 to make them easy to find and access and so far this approach is working very well.”

PAK'nSAVE Timaru owner/operator Jason Williams says he’s delighted to be able to offer locals and visitors another fuel option. “Feedback so far from customers using our fuel sites is that they appreciate being able to fill up with petrol at the same time as getting their groceries. We also made a big investment in ensuring our staff are trained to assist customers through an intercom if they need help and it appears to be paying off with most customers finding the new pumps extremely easy to use.”

PAK’nSAVE Timaru’s fuel site is open from 7am until 9pm.
