Gull Effect Comes to Papakura, Prices Will Fall

Cheaper Fuel Promised by Family Owned Retailer as it Opens 57thSite
Opening Special Unleaded Below $2 per litre

Auckland, 16 January 2014 – A new era of competition in petrol prices will hit Papakura tomorrow from 10am when independent family owned fuel retailer Gull New Zealand opens its new unmanned, drive thru site in the South Auckland suburb.

Located at 302 Great South Road, Gull Papakura is the 57th outlet for the business and will undoubtedly lower the cost of petrol in the area, says Graham Stirk, Gull New Zealand Retail Business Manager.

“We know from experience that when we expand to a new area and bring our low cost model to the local market, competitors’ prices mysteriously fall. It’s been well documented in places like Kumeu, Pukekohe, and Levin, where collectively motorists have saved hundreds of thousands of dollars annually once Gull hits town.

“Gull will be continuing its proud tradition of providing value to kiwi drivers. With four pumps selling all grades of fuel, equipped with high flow diesel dispensers which are perfect for commercial vehicles, our unmanned site will be delivering sharp petrol prices from the moment it opens. Unleaded will be priced at below $2 per litre, something we hope will be well received by customers.

“Cheaper fuel prices. What could be better?”

Gull Papakura is an unmanned site, accepting payment via EFTPOS or PIN operated credit or debit card.
