Countdown Dunedin South reopens after rat infestation

There was not a rat in sight at the reopening of "the cleanest store in town" after two weeks of the rodents running rings around the supermarket giant.

Countdown South Dunedin officially reopened its doors at 8am yesterday, marking an end to the shop’s 18-day closure.

Cars began to trickle in once news broke of the supermarket’s return.
