Refund & Returns Policy

December 2023
Foodstuffs North Island

Foodstuffs North Island Limited (“Foodstuffs” “we” “our” “us”) is committed to providing quality grocery products. This Refund and Returns Policy covers product quality and pricing issues for all goods purchased from a Foodstuffs North Island PAK’nSAVE, New World or Four Square store (in store or online).

Product Quality Issues

We stand by the quality of our products. If you think a product you’ve purchased is of an unacceptable quality, you can request a refund, exchange, or replacement. Please inform our customer service desk upon entry to the store when returning your product.

Please choose your items carefully as we do not offer refunds, exchanges, or replacements if you change your mind.

How do I request a refund, exchange, or replacement for product quality issues?

If you purchased the product in store, you can:

• return the product to the same store that you purchased it from no later than 3 days after the date of purchase for fresh products (being any product purchased from the produce, bakery, butchery, deli or seafood departments) or 30 days after the date of purchase for all other products;

• provide acceptable proof of purchase; and

• request a refund, exchange or replacement.

If the product you purchased isn’t of acceptable quality, we will, at your option, either:

• refund you the price paid for the product to the original payment method used to purchase the product if the store has this capability (if the refund is to a payment card, this will typically be processed within 3 business days from the date of return), or refund you in cash;

• replace the faulty product; or

• exchange the faulty product for a similar one of equal value.

The store will only be able to offer an exchange or replacement if the product you want is in stock at the time of the request. If the product is not in stock, we will provide you with a refund instead in accordance with this Policy.

If you do need any assistance with an in store return, please contact our customer service team (see details in the “Customer Support” section below).

If you purchased the product online (including through the PAK’nSAVE mobile app), you can either return the product to the store you purchased the product from following the process outlined above or you can contact our customer service team (see details in the “Customer Support” section below).

If you are contacting the customer service team, please:

• provide photographic proof of the product issue(s) within 3 days of the date of purchase for fresh products (being any product purchased from the produce, bakery, butchery, deli or seafood departments) and 30 days for all other products; and

• provide acceptable proof of purchase.

If the product you purchased isn’t of acceptable quality, the customer service team will work with the store you purchased the product from and arrange (at your option):

• for you to exchange the product in store at the same store that you purchased it from;

• for you to collect the replacement product in store from the same store that you purchased it from; or

• for us to process the refund (which will follow the same process used for in store purchases).

The store will only be able to offer an exchange or replacement if the product you want is in stock at the time of the request. If the product is not in stock, we will provide you with a refund instead in accordance with this Policy.

Pricing Issues

Pricing integrity is important to us. If you are charged more for an item than the purchase price displayed on the item’s shelf label (for in store purchases) at the time of purchase, or the purchase price displayed online (for online purchases) at the time you place your order, we will refund you the difference.1

You can either contact our customer service team (see details in the “Customer Support” section below) or return to the store that you made the purchase from. We may require you to provide us with acceptable proof of purchase to help us verify the pricing issue. Once any pricing issue has been confirmed, you will either receive a refund of the difference between the charged price and the shelf price to the original payment method used (if the store has this capability), or in cash.

Other policies and laws

This Policy applies in conjunction with the PAK’nSAVE North Island Fresh Guarantee. You can see details of this here. In the event of any inconsistency between the policies, this Policy will prevail.

This Policy and the PAK’nSAVE Fresh Guarantee are in addition to the obligations of all Foodstuffs North Island stores under the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 and all applicable laws in relation to the sale of goods sold at our stores.

Customer Support

We are here to help. If you have any questions or would like to get in touch with our customer support team, please contact PAK’nSAVE North Island: 0800 725 672

Policy Updates

We may update this Refund & Returns Policy from time to time to ensure it reflects our commitment to our customers and community.

Any changes to this Policy will be communicated on the Foodstuffs North Island website and displayed in PAK’nSAVE, New World and Four Square stores in the North Island.

Thank you for being part of our community and for choosing a Foodstuffs North Island store as your trusted supermarket.

 

1 Please note that for products where you are charged based on the weight purchased (such as meat, produce, seafood and deli), the purchase price is the amount charged for the actual weight of the item at the unit price displayed by the store at the time you made your purchase (for instore) or at the time you placed your order (for online).
