New World Howickis completing its finishing touches, as the eagerly anticipated supermarket gets ready to open on Tuesday 2 December at 8.15am.  

 “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 3,484sqm 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.

The new supermarket will create 120 new jobs in the community.

The supermarket, located at the corner of Union Road and Wellington Street in Howick, will be officially opened on Tuesday 2 December 2014 at 8.15am by Mayor of Auckland Len Brown.  Members of the public are welcome to attend the opening and be amongst the first people to shop at New World Howick.
