Providing for Matamata farmers
The new purpose-built Matamata Farmlands store has recently opened its doors. At 127 Mangawhero/Tauranga Rd, RD3, the store offers Farmlands’ shareholders a wider range of products and greater accessibility than the original Matamata branch, originally occupied by Farmlands in 1991.
Business manager Bryan Ross said the new store was ideally situated.
‘‘It’s a prime site with ample car parking and yard space for our shareholders and customers – you can’t miss it,’’ Mr Ross said.
He and his team are ecstatic to be in the new store, describing it as, ‘‘A new house that we just couldn’t wait to be in.’’
‘‘The establishment of our new Farmlands store is adding to the development of the town and giving people more confidence in their retail market,’’ Mr Ross said.
Farmlands chief executive Peter Ellis said, ‘‘In common with the existing Farmlands stores, the new Matamata branch offers what we believe is the widest range of merchandise in the industry.’’
Although Farmlands is a cooperative structure – inviting new shareholders to join and take advantage of the membership benefits – everyone is welcome to shop at the new Matamata store.
As a predominantly dairy farming area, the Matamata branch is stocked to meet the requirements of the region’s farmers.
Farmlands Matamata caters for all manner of farming types, as well as many domestic requirements.
Mr Ross believes that the new Farmlands store is a great asset to Matamata and he encourages farmers to call in and see the new store and the great range of products available.
