As we are learning, things change very quickly at the moment.
Despite the very best efforts of our volunteer Fire Chief, Jo Adams, Opoutere no longer has access to grocery deliveries from Whangamata New World OR water deliveries.
We understand that intense demand has placed these services under stress and there isn’t the capacity to deliver food or water to Opoutere.
Thanks to Jo and his team for helping out at the supermarket which is still open as an essential service – albeit with different opening hours and new operating procedures.
New World has implemented certain rules to keep their customers safe at this time. You will notice a restriction on numbers of customers allowed in at any one time, reduced staff numbers, contactless payment and there will be some stock restrictions as well. Don’t forget to take a list, send one family member at a time and “shop normal” by buying only what you need.
Please visit the New World website to see how shopping works during the Alert Level 4 period.
*Thanks again, Jo, for going out of your way to help the community.*
