Company Description

Our purpose

Here at The Warehouse, we have a mission to make Kiwis’ lives a little better every day. We do this by providing exceptional shopping experiences, both in store and online. We want you to get the very best in choice, value, and convenience. It also means making a difference outside our stores for our communities and the environment. Whether it’s working with KidsCan and the Salvation Army, making sure our products are responsibly and ethically sourced, using electric delivery trucks or making our stores energy efficient, we take our social and environmental responsibilities seriously.

Our stores

We’re proud to serve Kiwi communities all over our beautiful country. With over 185 supermarkets across New Zealand, we’re committed to being your one-stop shop for groceries and more. Our friendly team members have a passion for providing excellent customer service, and more than 20,000 products means we have something for everyone. We pride ourselves on stocking only the best brands, including our own exclusive range of products. While we’re known as Countdown, we’re part of Woolworths New Zealand, a subsidiary of the publicly-listed Australian company, Woolworths Group Limited. Woolworths New Zealand is also the franchise coordinator for Fresh Choice and SuperValue. That's why you might see products that are ‘exclusive to Countdown’, ‘only sold at Countdown’, or ‘exclusive to Woolworths’ also sold at these stores.
