Four Square has helped our local communities thrive for almost a century.
In July 2019, Four Square celebrated its 95th birthday. We took TVNZ Breakfast viewers on a journey to Four Square Maniototo where they met the community and celebrated this very exciting milestone for the brand. As part of our integration with TVNZ Breakfast, Four Square hosted a “Forever Young” competition inviting viewers to nominate a special nonagenarian in their lives to win a birthday party to remember, courtesy of Four Square.
A week later, viewers were invited to celebrate the birthday of Gerald Frost, the lucky winner of Four Square’s ‘Forever Young’ competition. Nominated by his daughter, Nelson local ”Papa G”, as he is affectionately called, spent 40 years as the local milkman delivering milk to his local Four Square store. Papa G enjoyed a birthday to remember on a fishing trip out to d’Urville Island in the Marlborough Sounds where he spent the day with his family on the water followed by a helicopter ride home.

The beachside community of Raglan is known for its surf, friendly locals, and sustainability efforts. Four Square Raglan made the switch to renewable energy with their 108-strong solar panel array in December.
