Re: No New World planned here, April 13 story.

New World is a fabulous supermarket and we are in desperate need of another supermarket here in Gisborne.

The Mangapapa Superette is close to us and a NW supermarket on that site would be amazing.

We are so disappointed, as many residents this side of the river thought we were getting a New World and the owner of the Mangapapa superette was going to be the manager. What a shame!

We have so many more people coming to Gisborne from the larger cities. We need this supermarket — NW has the freshest foods, amazing bakery and great choices which we can’t get here. Please listen to my plea as well as hundreds of other Gisborne residents: We need a New World here!
