A good local supermarket, always plenty of parking around. Produce is good for a supermarket chain and the supermarket is always nice and tidy. The staff on the checkouts are friendly, it can get really busy during peak hours and there can be long queues at both self-service and normal checkouts.
This is a large Countdown branch located at the busy Great South Road & Green Lane intersections. The spacious carpark is shared with McDonalds. The supermarket itself has large seafood, bakery, butchery and deli counters inside. There are lots of helpful employees on hand and on Fridays there are yummy samples to test.
The online pick up grocery option is good too. With efficient staff who are quick to learn their regulars.
Great location and selection of products. Layout is kind of strange, different from every other countdown so it's hard to find what you're looking for. Wouldn't recommend it for parcel collect, the staff don't scan your parcels in so you don't know when they arrive.
This is a huge countdown with a really great range off stuff. The have lot of high quality deli and fresh products available. It can be pretty crazy busy you they usually have lots of cashiers open for use. Tricky location between busy main roads as well.
I really like this Countdown, one of the few that is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It has a great selection of stuff - and a very big wine and beer section also. Perfect for a late night takeaway from the deli, with a bottle of wine. Centrally located and near the motorways too. Has a bakery, deli, butchery and all of the other departments you'd expect. I'm old fashioned - I prefer to use staffed checkouts rather than self service. There are sometimes queues here - it's a busy store - but you do have the choice of which checkouts to use. Recommended.
