Foodstuffs North Island has relocated its Wellington Gilmours store to 33 Bouverie Street, Petone. Work began on the fit-out of the 4750 sqm building in June and the store was officially opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony today [October 17].

“Foodstuffs North Island has invested more than $1 million in the development of this leasehold property, which is located in a light industrial area handy to State Highway 2,” said Foodstuffs North Island’s GM Property Development Lindsay Rowles.

“The old store in McCormack Place, Ngauranga closed on October 12 and all 71 staff have moved to the new location with owner-operator Matt Humphrey.”

“In this new location, we’re able to offer our Gilmours customers a larger, more modern store and more parking.”

Gilmours supplies food and beverages to all different types of New Zealand businesses including restaurants and cafes, catering institutions, event centres, schools and clubs. See gilmours.co.nz for more information on becoming a member.
