As Grocery Prices Rocket, Mr Rental Bucks Your Pocket

Media Release
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Monday 4 August 2014

As Grocery Prices Rocket,
Mr Rental Bucks Your Pocket

MR RENTAL is coming to the rescue as a Hip Pocket Hero, helping New Zealanders stay on top of forever-rising food costs by rewarding grocery vouchers to loyal customers.

With Statistics New Zealand’s latest report showing a five percent increase in fruit and vegetable prices and a 3.6 percent increase in meat, poultry and fish prices for the month of June 2014, Mr Rental decided a six-week Hip Pocket Hero promotion would be the perfect treat for customers needing the extra boost.

Mr Rental Marketing and Product Manager Grant Peck said the campaign, which will reward customers with $1,000 worth of groceries each week for six weeks, comes at a great time for New Zealand families currently feeling the squeeze.

“From the start of the year, New Zealand has seen a continual increase in grocery costs, which can be difficult for many families, and of course, our valued customers,” Mr Peck said.

“Having witnessed yet another increase last month, we decided to give back to our customers and thank them for their support."

“Mr Rental’s mission is to keep life simple for our customers and this is a great opportunity for us to do just that."

Hip Pocket Hero is open to all New Zealand residents who enter into a new Weekly Rental Agreement with participating Mr Rental stores from 4 August to 12 September 2014.

A franchise group servicing all regions of New Zealand and Australia, Mr Rental keeps life simple by offering a wide range of technology, furniture, white goods and fitness equipment for home, lifestyle or business.
