Market-style grocery shopping has arrived in the Waikato with today’s (Mar. 1) opening of Nosh Food Market’s new Hamilton store.
With consumers in their droves flocking back to fresh produce and personal service, Nosh has seen sensational growth in Auckland and the Hamilton store is the company’s sixth to open in five years.
The store is modelled on Nosh’s flagship Dominion Road market in the Auckland suburb of Mt Eden. It carries the full Nosh offering of the highest quality fresh produce, butchery, bakery and delicatessen at competitive prices.
The company has been busy recruiting locally to fill all of the 20 staff positions required to run the store seven days.
Nosh co-founder Clinton Beuvink says Kiwis are embracing the affordable prices of market-style shopping.
“Markets have really taken off. You can see it in the success of the farmers markets springing up in rural areas. With Nosh, urban shoppers can get the same fresh produce and personal service their country cousins enjoy.”
Hamilton food lovers can now get the authenticity and expertise of the traditional butcher, the baker, deli, greengrocer and more, and all at real market prices and on one site.
“Nosh is a fresh led market with the best quality products and comparable prices. Plus, we employ qualified, passionate and food-loving people who are willing to provide the customer with a great shopping experience,” Mr Beuvink says.
Nosh’s emphasis on quality food and produce at affordable prices also appeals to modern household shoppers who are becoming more creative in the kitchen, Mr Beuvink says.
The produce section boasts an array of fresh, seasonal fruit and veg, and the deli has a wide selection of cheeses, meats, olives and other offerings.
The Blackrock Butchery stocks the finest quality meats and champions traditional butchery practices. It specialises in aged beef, NZ lamb, poultry, free range Freedom Farm pork and NZ’s best home-made sausages.
“We’re thrilled to be bringing this offer to Waikato food lovers,” Mr Beuvink says.
The new premises were built by Downey Construction to a design by local Hamilton firm Noel Jessup Architects and a fit-out by Gascoignes. There is on-site parking for 24 cars.
