It’s one of the fastest-growing parts of the country, and now it has a new supermarket too, with the newly-built New World Papakura opening its doors recently. The new store was built just 100 metres up the road from the old one, on East Street in Papakura’s CBD.

Peter Lynch, Owner-Operator of New World Papakura, said: “The new store brings more choice, great prices and the same quality personal service our customers expect and deserve.”

Dozens of new jobs have been created, too, with up to 45 more staff depending on the time of year, who’ll be joining the current team of 90. The new store is also more eco-friendly, with features such as the CO2 refrigeration, energy efficient lighting and rain water harvesting systems.

“Sustainability is a major focus for us. As well as providing a soft plastics recycling bin at the front of our store, we’ll continue to offer New World’s discount for those who bring their own reusable bags. We are also aiming to divert at least 80% of our waste away from landfill,” says Lynch.rsz_story_4_new

The new store has a retail area of 1,615m² – nearly double that of the old store – while the total premises is just over a hectare in area, and includes 152 carparks.

“Everything has been designed with customer convenience in mind: more carparks, wider aisles, way bigger range in fresh foods, and more checkouts, including self-serve, to make shopping quicker.”
