Plaza renames and Mitre 10 moves
Posted at 10:33am Thursday 19 Nov, 2020
Mitre 10 on the peninsula is set to move from Karepiro Drive to the premises due to be vacated by The Warehouse Whangaparāoa.
The Warehouse branch is closing at the end of January (HM August 19).
In a press release, Riviera Hardware Holdings (owner of Mitre 10 Whangaparāoa) says the 5000sqm space is 50 percent larger than its current store and will allow it to expand, including a bigger garden centre.
Riviera managing director Cam Caithness says the plan is to transfer existing staff to the new store, which he says will also create new jobs.
Mitre 10 is expected to open in the new location by next Spring.
The space is part of the complex formerly known as The Plaza, or Coast Plaza. Coast Plaza recently removed the word ‘Plaza' from its name and rebranded as simply ‘Coast', which its management says “reflects a move away from a traditional shopping model into a town centre”.
