Four Square Wainui Road has re-opened its doors to the Gisborne community today, after months of operating out of a temporary site located at the back of the shop.
Local owner operators Sam and Victoria Wanklyn have owned the Four Square since 2018 and are proud to be able to offer the community a state-of the-art store that’s been specifically designed and tailored for their needs.
Sam says he is delighted to have the renovations complete after a huge community effort.
“It’s been a challenging few months, however the team has done an amazing job keeping the store running throughout the re-build. We’re grateful to be a part of such a fantastic partnership with Foodstuffs North Island and the Tilley family who were the original Four Square owners back in the 80s. "
“We couldn’t have hoped for better people to partner with to complete this complex rebuild project. We also want to say a huge thank you to the community for being so patient throughout this process and to everyone who has helped us get to opening day including the construction team and the many other contactors involved. We feel that the new store has a lot to offer, and we're excited to be opening."
