An eagerly anticipated New World store welcomed its first shoppers on Tuesday 2 December. The supermarket, located at the corner of Union Road and Wellington Street in Howick, was officially opened at 8.15am by Mayor of Auckland Len Brown. New World Howick will create 120 new jobs in the community.
“We are thrilled to bring New World back to the Howick community,” says Angela Bull, Foodstuffs North Island General Manager, Property Development. “We have had incredible support and interest from the Howick community from when New World was first announced, and we are excited to be able to open the doors to the 3,484 square metre modern New World for our customers to enjoy. With 161 car parks, and access from both Union Road and Wellington Street, the supermarket will allow our customers to do all their grocery shopping in a modern and convenient environment.”
Brendon Jones, owner-operator of New World Howick is looking forward to opening the new supermarket. “I can’t wait to open the doors to our new store and bring the New World experience to Howick, giving our customers more supermarket choice and competition. The store looks fantastic, with plenty of car parking and easy access. We’ll have wide aisles, lots of exciting fresh food and grocery products, and all the great prices and personal service our customers have come to enjoy shopping at New World,” says Jones.
