Pro­vid­ing for Mata­mata farm­ers

Matamata Chronicle - - Rural Delivery -

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.
