Ti­tahi Bay the­atre con­demned

Nicky: ‘‘This is a mas­sive blow to ev­ery­one who lives in Porirua City, the shows they have at PLT are top class.’’

Bay Res­i­dent: ‘‘. . . If this his­tor­i­cal build­ing is to face the bull­doz­ers, they, the coun­cil, would prob­a­bly have a huge bat­tle from res­i­dents of The Bay. This link with The Bay’s past needs to be saved for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions, ir­re­spec­tive of what state it is in.’’ Su­per­mar­ket price ‘spies’ tres­passed

An­gel: ‘‘I have a pretty stan­dard shop­ping list that I print off copies of and cross off the things I don’t need this time around. It was in or­der of the way they had things in the aisles. Then Porirua New World re­ar­ranged their shop, so I wanted to re­order my list so I could get in and out in the most ef­fi­cient way. I got stopped by their un­der­cover shop­per dude and he asked what I was up to . . . made me feel like a crim­i­nal for ac­tu­ally want­ing to shop in their store.’’

MDR: ‘‘All of which proves that su­per­mar­kets re­ally hate gen­uine com­pe­ti­tion – drives the prof­its down, af­ter all. Look at the re­ac­tion of both Pro­gres­sive and Food­stuffs a few years ago when The Ware­house made noises about sell­ing fresh pro­duce – any­one re­mem­ber that?’’
