COUNTDOWN has put forward plans for a $17 million supermarket in Aotea, with the Porirua City Council receiving a plan change application for a 3000 sqm supermarket at 3 Whitford Brown Avenue. Adrian Walker, Countdown’s general manager for property, says the company is pleased to have found a suitable site for a full service Countdown supermarket, which would create up to 80 new jobs.

“Porirua is growing and we want to help support this growth and provide a great offer to the Aotea community including competitive prices which we’re always working to deliver for our customers.” Walker says the company can offer a lot to its team including flexible working hours for youth and part time workers, as well as fostering career development and training. “We’ve worked hard to put forward a plan that will fit in with the local community, including a design that complements the site and surrounding area with native trees and landscaping,” he says.
