Aaron Drever is the owner and man behind the new small-format grocery store The Grocer's Market, occupying the same building as the former Nosh space on Dominion Road, Mt Eden, Auckland.

Previously a real estate agent, Drever purchased the Nosh brand from receivers in August, including fittings, IP and supplier networks, however, suppliers have been reluctant to come on board following being burnt by Nosh and getting them on board was a struggle initially. Drever is said to be personally guaranteeing suppliers and staff.

Drever would like to open more, but is focussed on this store and would like to get it perfect before opening a second site.

The store officially opens today (Friday 10 November).
