New Christchurch supermarket planned

10:48 pm on 6 March 2012

Foodstuffs has announced it is building a new Pak 'n Save supermarket next to its existing store in Christchurch's eastern suburbs.

The Wainoni store has superficial earthquake damage and Foodstuffs says it will be cheaper to build another store rather than make repairs.

The current store will continue trading while the new $25 million development takes shape.

Building is expected to start this year.
