Foodstuffs to replace Clendon store with Pak ’n Save

Foodstuffs North Island Ltd has decided to replace its New World store in Clendon with a bigger Pak ’n Save supermarket.

It’s had a New World in the Clendon shopping centre since the South Auckland suburb was established in 1984, but Foodstuffs property development general manager Angela Bull said yesterday it was time, after 30 years, for a complete makeover: “We have had a good look at the store and seen there’s a great opportunity for Pak ’n Save to come to Clendon to best meet our customers’ needs.”

The conversion from the present store’s gross floor area of 2993m² to the proposed Pak ’n Save 4706m² will happen in stages and the store will stay open throughout the construction. The redevelopment has consent and Ms Bull expected construction of the first stage of the new supermarket to start in mid-2016.

McDonald’s buys its Clendon outlet

Written 29 April 2010 but seemingly not published at the time, published 17 July 2010

The McDonald’s outlet at the Clendon shopping centre was sold for $2.8 million on a 6.5% yield at a Colliers International auction today.


The auction drew 3 bidders and was sold under the hammer to McDonald’s Restaurants NZ Ltd, which also has a $100 million programme to expand its outlets to 173 by the end of next year.


The 306m² restaurant sits on a 1151m² site, with its own title, at the corner of Roscommon Rd & Robert Ross Place, on the edge of the Clendon shopping centre’s second stage. Current rent was $181,500 plus gst, with all outgoings paid by McDonald’s as tenant. It includes a McCafe, drive-through & playground.


It was taken to auction by Point Nominees (Clendon) Ltd (Chris Holmes, Remuera), a subsidiary of Point Capital Group Ltd (Mr Holmes & Tony Hannon, Torbay).


McDonald’s had first right of refusal on the property. Any other buyer would have had a long-term tenant – McDonald’s signed a 10-year lease renewal in December 2007 and had 3 more 6-year rights of renewal.


The shopping centre was built around 1984 and was most recently extended in 2008. It’s anchored by a Warehouse store, has more than 40 specialty tenancies, some office space and parking for 575 cars, and 2 other sites under separate ownership – the New World supermarket & Mobil service station. All of them come under the shopping centre management agreement.


McDonald’s development director Brett Watson said the company had a first right of refusal on most of its stand-alone tenancies but evaluated them carefully before buying. The price on this one was considered “market”, although some retail properties have sold recently at stronger yields.


Meanwhile, McDonald’s is into the second year of its 3-year programme to add 30 restaurants to its fast-food network. It built 10 last year, is on track to complete 10 more this year and should add another 10 next year.


The first for 2010 was opened at Richmond, Nelson, one will open in about 2 months at the corner of Constellation & Apollo Drives, Mairangi Bay, and work started this week on a site on Whangaparaoa Rd, next to the Berkeley cinema and just down from the Pacific Plaza shopping centre on the Whangaparaoa Peninsula.
