Building is expected to start at 171 Main North Rd in the next few months, and will take up to 12-18 months to complete. The proposed Northcote Entertainment Sports Terminal was set to be built at the site but the supermarket will go there instead. Foodstuffs head of external relations Antoinette Laird said the site was chosen because Papanui is an “up-and-coming” area. “The Main North Rd site will service a growing and exciting community,” she said. “We’re pretty sure the new Pak’nSave will be a real asset to the community.” A Pak’nSave branded petrol station will also be built on the site. Said Ms Laird: “There are many factors to take into account when developing a project of this scale. With every new store we look to incorporate features which celebrate the area in terms of look and feel.” •Turn to page 6 This Weekend!
