Supermarkets in family
By ABBIE NAPIER
MR GROCERIES: Greg Boock and wife Rebecca will be opening the Woolston New World next weekend (May 4).
GROCERIES ARE in the blood for
the proud owner of Woolston New
World, opening for the first time
This is the first supermarket
Greg and Rebecca Boock have
owned, but it is definitely not
Greg's first time at the rodeo.
His grandfather owned a New
World in Dunedin where his son,
Greg's father, worked as a young
When Greg was 11, the family
upped sticks and moved north to
Christchurch where his father
took over Bishopdale New World.
Greg started doing odd jobs at
the supermarkets as young as 8
and it was not long before he was
contributing to the family busi-
ness part-time while in school.
I grew up in supermarkets
really,'' he said. It was definitely
a family business.''
Greg's parents have now moved
to Blenheim where they own
another New World.
His sisters are both in super-
markets, one owning a Pak 'n
Save and one a New World.
If that wasn't enough, Greg is
leaving a role as store manager at
the Northlands Mall Pak 'n Save,
owned by his aunt and uncle.
His move to own his own super-
market was a long time coming.
I never considered any other
career to be honest. It's cool to be
finally able to get to this stage.''
Greg's New World will be
replacing the SuperValue on St
Johns St, which runs between
Linwood Ave and Ferry Rd.
Woolston's turning into a bit of
a hub out there with the Tannery
project and all the developments.
We're just really excited to become
a part of that community.''
All 28 staff at the SuperValue
will be employed by Greg after the
No-one is losing their jobs.
They're safe and secure and that
is how we want it to be. After all,
I need them.''
The new store will be open 7am
till 9pm and will be upgraded to
include some deli products, sea-
food and bulk foods.
A Foodstuffs spokesperson said
a new store could be built in the
future on the same site.
Woolston New World will be
closed for preparations three days
before the grand opening on
Saturday May 4.
A free independent advisory
service for home owners facing
difficult issues with rebuild or
repairs will be opened in
Christchurch next month.
Earthquake Recovery Minister
Gerry Brownlee said the service
would help those facing complex
issues and conflicting advice, by
identifying potential solutions,
preventing unnecessary disputes
and contributing to a smooth and
timely rebuild process.
City works delays
The Bealey Ave-Colombo St
intersection has been partly
closed for two weeks as a SCIRT
contractor starts major
wastewater pipe works in Colombo
St. Eastbound traffic has been
reduced to one lane, with no
turning across Bealey Ave. Work
will continue north up Colombo St
over winter but two-lane traffic will
still run. Several weeks of brick
barrel work on stormwater pipes in
Moorhouse Ave near the Colombo
St overbridge also started this
week, with west-bound traffic
reduced to one lane. Motorists are
advised to use St Asaph St.
Tomorrow Montreal St will be
reduced to one lane from
Cambridge Tce/Avon River to
Armagh St/Cranmer Square.
More cordons roll back
Three sections of the central city
reopened last weekend as the
rebuild zone cordon shrinks. The
public can now walk through New
Regent St from the Gloucester St
end. A section of Cambridge
Terrace, west of Manchester St
now also gives public access to
the PGC site where 18 people died
the February 2011 earthquake.
The city-side of the Avon River
between Hereford and Armagh Sts
is also accessible to pedestrians
only, creating a walkway from
Re:Start Mall to Victoria Square
and the Pallet Pavilion. By the end
of June, only site-specific fencing
will remain around worksites in the
