Countdown has two supermarkets in Ashburton, one to the North end of the Township and the new site which opened in June 2017 at the Southern end of the township.
With 184 supermarkets across New Zealand supported by 18,000 team members, we give our customers a choice of more than 20,000 different products in each of our stores.
Behind the scenes, our in-store teams are supported by four dry grocery distribution centres, three fresh produce distribution centres, two meat processing plants, one seafood processing plant and a central support office.
Moving products from these hubs to our stores means our drivers have to travel more than 17 million kilometres per year, making over 250,000 deliveries to keep our stores stocked.
While we’re known as Countdown, we form part of Woolworths New Zealand, a subsidiary of the publicly-listed Australian company, Woolworths Limited. In addition to Countdown, Woolworths New Zealand is also the franchise co-ordinator for the Fresh Choice and SuperValue banner groups.
