New supermarket for Pukekohe

The second largest Pak‘N Save in the country is to open on Tuesday (26 September) in Pukekohe.

The superstore covers almost the area of a rugby field with well over half of this in retail, featuring shopping experiences such as an international foods section, a live crab and crayfish tank and refrigerated fruit and vegetable fixtures which is a first for the supermarket chain.

The Pukekohe Pak‘N Save is employing 220 full and part-time people, with the vast majority from the local area.

Located on the corner of Queen Street and Harris Street, on the old Turners & Growers site, the Pak‘N Save also has ample space for cars, with 382 carparks on site.

Pukekohe Pak‘N Save owner/operator and local resident, Grant Prince, says he’s delighted that the opening is finally here.

“This has been a major project for the area, and we’re really looking forward to opening our doors.

“We’ve all worked very hard, it’s looking great and our staff are keen to serve real customers.”

Pak‘N Save has been consistently rated as the cheapest supermarket shopping in the country.

The most recent Consumer Magazine published price survey (April 2000) rated Pak‘N Save the cheapest place to shop in provincial areas where it was represented. The previous survey of supermarket prices (Consumer Magazine October 1999) stated “Once again, Pak‘N Save has recorded the lowest prices in our annual supermarket survey.”

The Pukekohe Pak‘N Save will be formally opened at 9am on Tuesday 26 September, by the Mayor of Pukekohe, Heather Maloney.

At the opening Pak‘N Save will also be presenting a $20,000 donation to Kidz First, the new South Auckland childrens’ hospital.
