Hygiene and social distancing measures
To help make our stores safer, we’ve introduced several measures to help us maintain an appropriate distance from each other while in our stores. We will review and adapt these in-store measures as the environment evolves.

Our stores will have signage displayed with the max capacity allowed in-store at any one time.
If the store has reached capacity, the number of customers will be managed using a one in, one out policy.
Click & Collect

Why didn't I receive all of my items?
Only received part of your order?READ FULL ARTICLE
We really don't want you to miss out on anything that you've ordered, so sometimes we fill orders from multiple warehouses which may result in separate deliveries. This is called a split order. We do this to make sure you can get your full order from all over New Zealand.
How does it work? If your order has been split into two parts and if one item is dispatched, you'll receive your first tracking number. When your second item is dispatched, you'll receive your second tracking number. You won't receive both tracking numbers at the same time because it's the order is fulfilled from separate warehouses which means different dispatch times.
