New Four Square on Banks Peninsula opening soon

A new Four Square will open in a Banks Peninsula retail development next week.

Owners Laura Palmer and James Grant, who also run On The Spot, said they have been working for nearly four years to open the store at the Church Bay retail development on August 10.

"It was always our goal to get a Four Square here and for it to finally happen is so exciting," said Grant.

"Yes, it’s daunting. Yes, we’re nervous, but the excitement absolutely overcomes this.

"The shop is starting to finally look like a supermarket."

A spokesperson for Spence Developments, which own the buildings, said the Four Square will be the most modern in the South Island.

The supermarket is one of six tenancies in the Church Bay development.

A cafe design is being developed for the last area and 80 per cent of the landscaping has been completed.

“Final car park works are under way with lighting poles put up late last week,” said the spokesperson.

“Footpaths have received asphalt and the car park will also be completed this week,  weather permitting.”
