Foodstuffs North Island is thrilled to announce a New World supermarket will be opening in the vibrant coastal town of Mangawhai by late 2021, set to provide greater convenience for locals and holiday makers.

An easy 90 minutes to central Auckland and located on the picturesque East Coast, Mangawhai offers a relaxing coastal lifestyle that more and more residents are calling home.

Proudly 100% Kiwi owned and operated, New World will be the first full-service supermarket to serve the growing coastal town, while staying at a size and character deemed suitable for Mangawhai.

The new supermarket will provide fresh and quality butchery, produce, seafood, deli, and bakery departments, an extensive range of products with an emphasis on local and seasonal and a superior customer experience that shoppers have grown to expect and love from New World stores everywhere.

New jobs will be created in the area for locals and summer visitors seeking an exciting and fast past pace job in the grocery industry. From in-store butchery, bakery and seafood fresh experts, to checkout operators and department managers, there will be many job opportunities available.

“We are always looking for ways to better serve the communities we operate in, and we are thrilled to provide the Mangawhai community with a supermarket that can accommodate their growing needs," said Foodstuffs North Island’s General Manager of Property and Membership Lindsay Rowles.

“Mangawhai is a rapidly growing beachside community and an important location for us to grow the New World brand. Our investment in New World Mangawhai Central will enable us to serve locals year-round, as well as the beachgoers who flock to the scenic coastal town during the warmer summer months.

“We know there is great demand and support for a new supermarket in the town, so we’re looking forward to collaborating with the Mangawhai community on potential store features and sharing more about what shoppers can expect over the coming years,” concluded Rowles.

The New World supermarket is part of the Mangawhai Central development, located in between Mangawhai “Heads” and “Village” along a picturesque causeway, and is among other anchor tenants.

The supermarket will open in late 2021, just in time for the busy Christmas summer holiday period.
