Edgecumbe Supervalue still closed

Frustration is simmering over as Edgecumbe continues without a supermarket.


The Edgecumbe Supervalue remains closed, some 18 months after the floods.

Community Board Chairperson Charelle Stevenson says she doesn't know exactly what the delay is.

But she says it's of such concern to the health and well being of people who live in Edgecumbe, the Community Board has invited the landlord and the business owner to attend a Board meeting to discuss the issues on the public record.


Ms Stevenson says the lack of any supermarket is hugely inconvenient for many in Edgecumbe, especially the elderly.
