Foodstuffs NZ have confirmed Mangapapa Four Square will not become a New World supermarket any time soon.

Persistent rumours about a new player among Gisborne supermarket options prompted The Herald to ask for official comment from Foodstuffs NZ — the parent company of New World, Four Square and Pak’n Save supermarkets around the country.

Foodstuffs NZ head of external relations Antoinette Laird said they were pretty happy with how things were tracking at the moment in Gisborne.

“But we will keep the community posted if anything changes.

“We regularly review the operations of every store in our network to ensure that we service the community to the best of our ability.

“Our Four Square supermarkets are always part of that review.”
