New World Kaiapoi
About the Project
A successful tender saw Leighs Construction subsequently appointed to carry out the contract for a new $12m replacement supermarket.
Leighs Construction was more than halfway through a $6m upgrade of the New World Kaiapoi supermarket when the premises were destroyed by the 4th September, 2010 earthquake.
Foodstuffs (South Island Ltd)
The new supermarket is 2,860m² with 83 car parks. The store features an espresso coffee counter, a larger than usual wine and beer area, a bigger, more customer-friendly butchery, a larger fish and seafood area, and a bigger deli and cheese stand. There are 14 checkout lanes, including six self-service lanes.
