No date has yet been set for when work will start on a Raeward Fresh in Prebbleton.
Resource consent was granted in April for the store, cafe and associated car parking which will be built behind the existing shopping area in Prebbleton.
Foodstuffs New Zealand head of external relations Antoinette Laird said they are working through the details of the project along with relevant parties.
“At this stage we do not
have a time line on the development that we can share. As soon as we have more news we will be delighted to share this with the local community,” she said.
In November, Foodstuffs South Island property and retail development general manager Roger Davidson said Prebbleton was chosen
due to projected customer demand.
He said there was a desire from consumers to have access to good quality fresh fruit and produce.
