This isn't my local but I was in the area the other night so Ipopped in ot do my shop. It is beautiflluy laid out they have a fantastic deli seciton. I had gone in at about 6pm and the food in the warm cabinet with the chickens was being reduced massively, a good option if you don't feel like cooking!
Plenty of parking, clean and tidy store. Has a great selection of prepared hot food and sandwiches/sushi and for reasonable prices. The bakery also has some delicious items in the cabinet, both savory and sweet, so a great place to stop off if you are going somewhere and need to take a plate!
This store is getting a 2.5. I have had some AWFUL experiences here.. From being treated like a criminal on multiple occasions when trying to redeem vouchers.. One when pregnant that left me visibly upset and distressed.. Nearly impossible to get parent parks because lazy patrons just park there with no children and they don't police it.. I go here if I absolutely must.. But tend to avoid like the plague! Some of their staff need a right talking to!
This is an awesome New World. Great location and plenty of parking. I've never believed that it's more expensive, their specials are always amazing and you can earn fly buys/air points. I prefer supporting locally owned companies as well. The shopping experience is just much nicer too.
Probably the best supermarket in Auckland to go Grocery shopping the prices are always better than their competition (Countdown) down the road. The customer service is light years of Countdown. They always have 2 people on the checkouts, 1 to scan & the other to pack, which is great as they are able to serve so quickly and efficiently.
