New World opens Long Bay location and first BYO initiative

The latest New World has settled within Long Bay. Along with a full offering of original New World amenities, it will also be the first store in the North Island to offer a bring-your-own container option to help New Zealanders reduce their environmental footprint.

Foodstuffs announced its move to BYO containers early this month. New World Pak’n Save and Four-Square stores in the North Island will offer it from June 1. New World Long Bay launches the new policy slightly earlier on May 28.

Long Bay was chosen to start early to tie in with the opening, BYO containers have been trialled at select Foodstuffs locations, after a successful trial period the scheme will begin at the start of June.

The offering allows customers to bring and use their own clean, leak-proof containers in the serve-over sections of the butchery, seafood, delicatessen and bakery departments.

 The BYO offering is only available at these departments at this point for two reasons: one, it means department employees can give the containers a onceover and make sure they are fit for purpose and most importantly clean, and two, employees can ensure the weight of the container is subtracted from the weight of the product being purchased.

The store is owned and operated by Marcus Te Brake, a second-generation Foodstuffs North Island owner and operator, who up until recently owned Four Square Coopers Beach and whose father owned the first PAK’nSAVE in Kaitaia for several years.

The new move comes alongside the plastic bag ban, which comes in to force July 1 and has already been adopted by a range of our supermarkets.

The new store is located in the Long Bay Village and will employee approximately 95 staff.
