Wainuiomata Mall one step closer to construction

The transformation of Wainuiomata has moved one step closer with Countdown being granted resource consent to develop a new, larger supermarket on the current site of the Wainuiomata Shopping Centre. Progress on the mall has been welcomed by Hutt City Council and the community of Wainuiomata.

The development will feature an entirely new shopping centre with eco-design features including the latest refrigeration and EV charging stations.

“News of progress on the mall is being positively received by the community and including both our team and customers,” says Matt Grainger, Countdown’s Head of Property.

“The new store will have an in-store Countdown Pharmacy, an expansive fresh produce department, an instore bakery, dedicated health food section and other features which we are sure customers will appreciate. Online shopping will also be catered for,” says Matt Grainger.

Countdown has now appointed their design consultants and design work is underway for the first two stages.

The supermarket is aiming to be completed by the end of 2020.
