New Store Proud to Be New Zealand Made - Norsewear

New Store Proud to Be New Zealand Made - Norsewear

There is a new retail store opening in Otaki over Labour weekend that is proud to stock only true New Zealand Made products, says Norsewear CEO Robert Linterman.

“The new store will be selling products from genuine New Zealand manufacturers – mainly Norsewear and Swazi. These businesses have made the decision to stay in New Zealand, make their products in New Zealand and create jobs in New Zealand. I’m excited and proud that our new store will be selling only New Zealand Made products,” says Mr Linterman.

“At Swazi, we see the new store as a real opportunity. It will be promoting good quality products which have been made right here in New Zealand. It will be a real showcase for local manufacturing. We think customers will appreciate the selection direct from our factory in Levin,” says Swazi Chief Executive Davey Hughes.

“A local manufacturer has produced a banner which simply says ‘Of course it matters, 100% New Zealand Made’. We need to protect the Buy New Zealand brand for products that are made here. It’s that simple,” says Mr Linterman.

This striking New Zealand made store opens in the old Yates Furniture building on the Main Street of Otaki over Labour weekend.

“I invite everyone to check it out,” he says.
