Countdown changes hours, limits stock
From today, Countdown Gisborne has changed its hours and will limit stock because of the continued level of demand in stores.
All Countdown stores, and online shopping services, will trade from 9am to 8pm across the country.
Countdown managing director Natalie Davis said the message to New Zealand remained the same — “We are not running out of food”.
“We have plenty of food in our supply chain, however we simply cannot get it through the network fast enough if Kiwis don't slow down their shopping. This is the only way we can try to manage demand,” she said.
From today, there is a limit of two similar items per customer visit across all Countdown stores and online shopping services, with the exception of produce and serviced deli.
