Mega smiles for store launch

By Nina Jensen

The smiles said it all. Thirteen years after the planning began for a Mitre 10 Mega in Queenstown, the tills have started ringing at the $20 million shop in Shotover Park.

Owner Jason Smith says it’s satisfying to finally have the 8000sqm development open, with doors now shut at the former Mitre 10 store in Remarkables Park.

It’s four years since the resource consent application was lodged.

“We dreamed up this plan a long time ago and it’s great to be able to open the doors and deliver on the vision we’ve had for our customers.”

All 40 staff from the previous store have relocated to Shotover Park, with up to 80 to be employed at the new site.

Staff worked until late Sunday to get the store ready for its soft opening yesterday, with stock still arriving on site.

The new store has a drive-through, a garden centre, a Columbus Cafe and a children’s playground, which was still being built yesterday morning.

The range on offer at the new store has effectively tripled, Smith says.
