May­oral wel­come

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Toko­roa res­i­dents no longer need to travel far to shop at Noel Leem­ing be­cause the town’s new­est busi­ness of­fi­cially opened on Fri­day.

Noel Leem­ing Group chief ex­ec­u­tive John Journee said the com­pany’s records showed Toko­roa peo­ple were trav­el­ling as far as Manukau to shop with the re­tailer.

South Waikato District mayor Neil Sin­clair (pic­tured) had the role of cut­ting the rib­bon to open the store.

He said the ar­rival of the re­tailer was among the first signs of eco­nomic growth in the South Waikato with sev­eral com­pa­nies look­ing to open re­tail or in­dus­trial op­er­a­tions in the district.
