HIS­TORY

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

From the early 1900s small shops called ‘‘dairy pro­duce sell­ers’’ sold milk, cream, cheese, but­ter and eggs.

They were the only shops al­lowed to sell these prod­ucts and were also al­lowed to open on Sun­days.

The term ‘‘dairy’’ be­came com­monly ap­plied to small gro­cery shops from the late 1930s.

Be­fore then a small shop sell­ing gro­ceries would have been called a ‘‘cash gro­cer’’.
