New World has been a part of the Browns Bay community for 43 years, but locals can now look forward to a new supermarket in early 2015, as work has commenced at the new site on 2 Inverness Road.
Angela Bull, Foodstuffs (North Island) General Manager Property Development is thrilled the Browns Bay community will soon have a New World with plenty of natural light to ensure a more enjoyable shop. “The first step in our construction programme is to demolish the current building on the site and we will then be able to build a new supermarket with a modern look and feel,” she says.
The supermarket in north Auckland will have a fresh bakery, butchery, deli and seafood counter, and a large range of fresh food and grocery products. Gary Christini, owner of New World Browns Bay is excited about the new store. He says: “I’ve loved getting to know the Browns Bay community through the Bute Road store and I’m excited to be a part of the new store. The supermarket will be a fantastic addition to the area, with a bigger store and greater range of fresh and everyday products.”
The new supermarket is expected to open by the end of the first quarter of 2015. The current New World located on Bute Road will continue to provide customers with usual service until the new store is ready to open.
