The new Tauriko Pak'nSave is opening next week, bringing 130 jobs to Tauranga.

The new supermarket has a floor space of 3380m2 and will be officially opened at 8.15am on Tuesday by Tauranga Mayor Stuart Crosby.

It is one of the businesses opening at the new Tauranga Crossing shopping centre.

Foodstuffs North Island general manager of property development Lindsay Rowles said there were lots of opportunities for growth in the area, and the new Tauriko store would help cater to the increasing demand this growth was placing on services.


"Tauranga Crossing is an exciting active retail space and we are confident the development is bringing some great services to the community."

Pak'nSave Tauriko owner-operator Jon Morrison said he was looking forward to supporting the growing Tauriko community.

"The store is looking fantastic, and I'm excited by the opportunity to bring the Pak'nSave offer to this new and developing community. House prices might be increasing around the region but I'm committed to doing my best to keep grocery prices down.

"I'm really looking forward to welcoming customers through the door and we hope they are as excited as we are."

Mr Morrison said he had a great team in place.

"A lot of time and effort has gone into choosing people who are passionate about being in the world of groceries.

"I've got some really talented butchers and bakers, and we have a checkout team ready and waiting to ensure our customers leave the supermarket with a smile on their face."
