Our thoughts are with all those affected by the recent earthquake. We would like to advise customers that all PAK’nSAVE stores are open and operational as normal. Stores have plenty of product on the shelf and it is business as usual.

Bottled water availability in Wellington 

Updated at 16/11/2016 15:30

On behalf of Foodstuffs we would like to confirm that it is business as usual in terms of supply to the Wellington region, specifically there are no shortages of bottled water in our PAK’nSAVE stores.

Earlier this week, in addition to the normal supply of stock in the distribution centre (DC), we sent 20 additional truckloads, which equates to 300,000 litres of water, to the Palmerston North DC for distribution to stores in the lower North Island as they require it. At the moment we have approximately 250,000 litres of water in the DC which continues to be replenished each day.

Based on the current situation we are not anticipating any shortages of bottled water as there is sufficient supply within our network.

All central Wellington stores have confirmed they have well stocked water shelves, so customers need not be concerned.
