Updates from the New World team about COVID-19 and our stores.
New World responds to greater Wellington region move to
Alert Level 2
Update Wednesday 23 June 2021
Following today's announcement, the greater Wellington region will move to Alert Level 2 from 6pm Wednesday 23 June until 11:59 pm on Sunday 27 June. Customers visiting their local New World store in the Wellington region can expect to see increased sanitisation, safety measures and physical distancing when they visit their local store.
We've all been here before, and our greater Wellington teams are well-prepared to reinstate Alert Level 2 protocols and look after their communities, and we ask that all customers, no matter where they live, to #shopnormal, use the NZ Covid Tracer App, and routinely wash their hands and sanitise.
New World stores have good stocks of PPE and hand sanitiser, and our teams are familiar with what is required to keep both themselves and our customers safe from COVID-19.
We would like to reassure customers that, just like before, our supply chain is robust. We are working hard to make sure all the grocery items households might need are on shelf and readily available. Just buy what you need, as you need it.
Our teams have got your back – #shopnormal, #bekind and #besafe.
