Farro’s much-anticipated new store is due to open in February at the Orakei basin development. It will be the chain’s fifth Auckland location, after Mount Wellington, Grey Lynn, Epsom and North Shore.
“A new-look store that still offers the same unique shopping experience that our customers have come to love, in a wonderful new area, means we have a whole new community of food lovers to meet and share our passion with,” said Michal Haines, general manager, Farro Fresh Food Ltd.
The footprint size, she added, is around the same as Farro’s existing Grey Lynn store, with ample onsite carpark.
“We will be employing approximately 60 people for the Orakei store, which will bring our Farro family up to over 450,” Haines said. “Some of our current team members are taking on the exciting new job of moving stores to help head up teams as well, so we see that as a really exciting new step in their careers.”
