New South Island supermarkets as Pak 'n Save, New World owner invests

Foodstuffs is continuing to invest in its South Island network with new openings and refurbishments.

During 2017, Foodstuffs South Island has invested $17 million in a 3100-square-metre supermarket in the Prestons subdivision in northeast Christchurch.

New World Prestons is expected to open in February 2018, creating 100 new jobs.

A $6m refurbishment of one of its original stores, Pak 'n Save Moorhouse in Christchurch would soon be completed, Foodstuffs South Island general manager property and retail development Roger Davidson said.

When completed in December, Pak 'n Save Moorhouse would look and feel like a new store, Davidson said.

In July, Foodstuffs South Island announced plans to move its central Christchurch store from South City Shopping Centre to a new site in Durham St.

"This work will take place in 2018 and will require an investment in the region of $20m. This new 3685sqm store will be larger and offer a more modern shopping experience for our customers."

Work will also continue on Project Chilly Bin – a new 28,551sqm temperature-controlled distribution centre that Foodstuffs South Island is building in Hornby.
