Nosh Food Market is extending its retail footprint by opening a new flagship store in Pakuranga to serve Auckland’s Eastern Bays this week.
The Pakuranga store is the eighth in the Nosh network and marks a turning point in the evolution of a business that has been through significant change over the last two years. Veritas Group purchased Nosh in late 2014 and board chairman Tim Cook says: “Over the last months the business has seen consolidation and a greater focus on
both the supplier network and the customer experience. This effort has paid off with the expansion into the Eastern Bays with a new store. This store is an important development for the Nosh Food Market business. We see it as the blue print for the future for Nosh with a new modern layout, which should provide a better in-store experience for customers.”
“Rod de Vries, our General Manager, and the wider Nosh team have worked extremely hard to deliver a high calibre grocery experience that will set the standard for the Nosh Food Market business moving forward,” he says.
Rod de Vries comment: “A focus on delivering excellent quality and value along with expert advice and knowledge to achieve that gourmet standard is what sets Nosh apart from its competitors and endears it to an already large base of existing customers.”
“Our growth depends on people – both those in our teams and those in each community we join. We plan to put far more emphasis on our people, as they are our most unique and important asset. For our staff, our commitment to training, engagement and performance will continue to grow; and in our communities we will strive to support and contribute to each of our local areas.
“In Pakuranga enquiries and interest has been intense so we’re delighted to be joining this community and begin delivering a little gourmet every day.”
The new Pakuranga store opens on Monday, August 31st and will be stocking the full Nosh range including deli, bakery, produce, grocery, butchery, seafood and alcohol as well as containing a small café. The store will be stocking over 3,000 product lines. It will have a team of 32 staff and will operate 8am -7pm, 7 days a week.
