South Auckland’s Ormiston Town Centre has recently opened two new stores, including a 6200sqm The Warehouse and Warehouse Stationery store-within-a-store concept, and a 1000sqm Noel Leeming store.
The Warehouse Group chief customer officer, Jonathan Waecker says the group is excited to be expanding its retail footprint.
“The new development is a welcome addition to South Auckland to support the surrounding community which is ever-growing and in need of a better retail offering.”
Providing versatility and convenience to shoppers, the spacious new The Warehouse store will be open seven days a week from 8am till 8pm, with a late night on Thursday till 9pm.
A Click and Collect counter will also be available at the front of the store to allow for quick and convenient pick ups.
“Our customers are loving the convenience of shopping online with same day in store pick-up, so we’ve prioritised the location and experience of our Click & Collect for both customers and team”, says Waecker.
The Warehouse Ormiston includes a full garden centre, as well as more space dedicated to displaying the homeware range, with the largest dedicated area of any other store in the country.
Its store-within-a-store concept features a Warehouse Stationery, which includes a Print & Copy centre and a passport service. Customers will have access to a full suite of printing solutions, with on-the-spot and personalised printing on items like mugs, calendars, posters, canvas and more.
The new store will empty 100 team members, 70 percent of which will be coming from the local area.
The Warehouse Group’s electronic retailer, Noel Leeming, will also be opening in the precinct. The new store will offer Ormiston shoppers a look into the future of retail in terms of store design and an extensive range of leading brand offerings that they can access right at their doorstep.
“Ormiston customers will have access to leading technology brands and expert service from our team of Passionate Experts, who can’t wait to help customers get the most out of their technologies,” says Waecker.
“There has been a steady stream of families moving into the area who need help setting up their new homes with the latest technology offerings. Opening our doors in the area means our customers won’t have to travel far from home to get the expert help they need.”
A tech solutions hub will also be on offer, where Tech Solutions specialists can provide delivery, unboxing, demonstrations, set-ups and removal of packaging.
Ormiston’s Noel Leeming will employ 17 people.
