SU­PER­MAR­KET SPLITS OPIN­ION

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Aotea Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion chair­man Rod­ney Strong says there are equal mea­sures of ex­cite­ment and con­cern among res­i­dents about the pro­posed new su­per­mar­ket. ‘‘There is a clear case for both sides,’’ he said. Some of the other com­ments on the Friends of Aotea Face­book page in­clude:

‘‘I would pre­fer a smaller shop in Aotea to a new big su­per­mar­ket and all the noise and traf­fic it will bring’’ - Brooke Fryer.

‘‘I think it’s a great idea, and will help the com­mu­nity who strug­gle to get into Porirua’’ - Jes­sica Black.

‘‘I am try­ing to vi­su­alise a mas­sive Count­down, with bright lights, additional noise and con­sid­er­ably heav­ier traf­fic’’ - Cat Jamie-Hall.

‘‘Why would you have so many su­per­mar­kets in the one area? It’s all a case of these gi­ant com­pa­nies that have no re­spect for a com­mu­nity but shove their com­peti­tors out the way’’ - Tasi Ta­ma­ma­sui.
