New su­per­mar­ket or not?

Adrian Walker, gen­eral man­ager prop­erty, said the Count­down group is al­ways look­ing for new op­por­tu­ni­ties to bring FreshChoice or Su­perValue stores to cus­tomers but there is “no im­me­di­ate plan” to have a store in town. “We al­ways look at op­por­tu­ni­ties in re­gional towns such as Waihi, not specif­i­cally in­clud­ing Waihi. He said Waihi cus­tomers can shop with Count­down on­line, de­liv­ered from its Katikati store.
