Pukekohe, in southern Auckland, is set to get its first New World supermarket before the end of the year.
Owner/operator Tim Wilson, a father of three, said the Paerata Road site was progressing according to plan and on track for a November opening date.
“We have a top notch team working on the site to finish on time and deliver a superior shopping experience for South Aucklanders,” he said.
The store, under the Foodstuffs umbrella, will employ around 130 workers, from in-store butchery, bakery and seafood experts, to checkout operators and department managers.
