Countdown Metro

Commercial Bay

Auckland’s central city shoppers will soon experience a brand new type of food and grocery store with construction starting on Countdown’s first Metro in lower Albert Street.

The new Metro store, set to open in December, will create 50 new jobs and give city customers a curated range for a quick and easy shop on the go, including kombucha and cold brew coffee on tap, takeaway coffees, and an extensive range of food-to-go options for breakfast, snacks, lunch and dinner which will change throughout the day.

“Customer needs and trends are constantly changing.  We know there are a growing number of people who forgo eating breakfast at home or bringing their lunch to work, and instead are looking for fresh and affordable food options near where they work,” says Brett Ashley.

“The first thing you’ll see when you walk in is a barista and breakfast options, and then as you go through the day you can get lunch and then, as you head home, there’s a dinner solution.  We know our customers are increasingly looking for quality fresh food options and we have designed our Metro store to offer busy city customers exactly that,” says Brett Ashley.

In addition to the new range, Metro will also offer a range of pantry essentials for customers to pick up at their convenience.

$2 per hour to a max of $12 on weekends and a $12 flat rate for weekday evenings at The Civic car park. Find out more
