I find this store selection wise is not as good as some of the other countdowns. It can be nearly impossible to get a park for this supermarket as this mall does not have enough parks for the amount of patrons and businesses. It is also a pain that you cannot buy a box of beer with your shopping due to local liquor laws.
Really like this Countdown store, which has later than normal hours, and is part of Lynnmall. Easy to get in and out of - it's right by the entrance... so even if the rest of the mall has closed, Countdown is often open (and the rest of the mall roped off).
Has a separate wine shop outside of the main supermarket, a partnership with Portage Licensing Trust - so you can get your wine and food all in the same complex (and the wine shop is directly opposite the Countdown store).
Great range of supermarket lines. It has an in-store bakery, in-store butchery, and full service deli counter - they even make their own fresh pizzas in house. I've never been disappointed coming here, I've always been able to get everything I've been after.
Sometimes a bit slow to restock shelves on specials - e.g. went to get some $1 L&P on a Saturday and they'd run out by noon... that's my only fault here.
Good and friendly service, queues are not normally too bad on the tills. I refuse to use self-service lines because I'm paying for that service in the food prices - call me old fashioned, but I like the interaction of dealing with the friendly staff.
Recommended, great store, one of the better Auckland Countdown locations.
