Darfield Four Square will undergo a redevelopment by the current owner/operators, Kelvin and Delwyn Taege. Although it is not a redevelopment directed by Foodstuffs, they have assisted them with the purchase of land adjoining the existing Four Square, from the Selwyn District Council, to enable the development to happen and will continue to assist them through the consent and construction stages. The land and buildings are owned by Taeco Ltd. The redevelopment is in response to the township's growth and to expand and improve the Four Square offer.
Despite current and anticipated growth for the region, Foodstuffs doesn't believe that the market is of sufficient size to sustain a New World or Pak'nSave, therefore the expanded and improved Four Square was the best way forward.
