Foodstuffs (Auckland) Ltd will build its replacement New World Kaikohe store on the site of the store destroyed by fire in November 2005.
Foodstuffs property development general manager Murray Jordan said the company evaluated before opting to stay put. It’s just received the necessary resource & building consents to rebuild. The new store will be a new generation New World. The first of these was opened at Te Rapa last October.
The new store will be 2150mÂ², more than double the old store’s size. The old New World Kaikohe had about 70 staff. The new store will provide more than 100 jobs and is scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of this year.
The new New World Kaikohe will be owned by Bernie McGinty, who owned the previous store.
