Shoppers at Porirua New World would have noticed some exciting changes of late, new co-owner Tony McNeil says, and they can expect more to come. Mr McNeil, wife Janet, and Ashley and Olivia Chester recently bought the supermarket. The McNeils have lived in Porirua for 13 years after moving from Melbourne. Mr McNeil was managing director of Foodstuffs Wellington for 12 years before retiring in 2010. The Chesters are a more recent arrival from across the Tasman. Olivia, a self-confessed foodie, has taken interest in helping out in the deli and other fresh foods departments. She is also Janet's twin sister. Ashley used to manage one of Melbourne's largest supermarkets and has also worked for New World at Silverstream. Mr McNeil says they are all very excited about their new ven- ture and plans are already under way for a major refresh of the store, which services more than 15,000 shoppers a week. We have lifted our stock levels, negotiated and promoted some exciting new deals. I'm the one responsible for buying full ship- ping containers of very cheap, but excellent quality Italian pasta and canned tomatoes as well as pasta sauce and olive oil. Customers have been grabbing these specials by the armful. Not to be outdone, Ashley has cornered the market on frozen chickens and fresh eggs, and we've been moving these out by the pallet load.'' Porirua New World will be closed this Monday for a major refit. This will include new fridges and fixtures for the florist, bulk foods, deli, bakery and alcohol departments. Mr McNeil says they will also be introducing some smarter service initiatives, while more of the popular self-checkout machines will be added next year. He says they are passionate about providing Porirua with a supermarket that delivers a truly wonderful retail experience''. We're also very lucky that the previous owners employed some very special people that are equally passionate about customer service.''
