All Blacks Drop into Telecom’s Willis St Store

All Blacks fans in Wellington wanting to meet a couple of players ahead of their Investec Rugby Championship test against Argentina on Saturday are in luck thanks to team sponsor Telecom.

All Blacks Keven Mealamu and Julian Savea are going to be dropping into Telecom’s flagship store at 42-52 Willis St from 10.30-11.30am this Friday (7th September) to meet and greet customers, have their photos taken and sign autographs for fans.

Telecom Store Manager Rory Faughnan says everyone is welcome to drop by and bring their own piece of memorabilia for signing by the guys, or have Telecom mini rugby balls signed.

“It will be a real honour to have the players in store again and we’re really looking forward to introducing them to our local Telecom customers and All Blacks fans. It would be great to have as many people as possible call in on Friday to give them a warm, ‘windy Wellington’ welcome.”
