Support Local

Rotorua, our local businesses need your support and aroha more than ever!

Chances are, the next wee while will be challenging for local business owners, so we’re hoping you’ll get behind our community – just like you did last year when this madness began – by shopping local.


Here’s a list of amazing Rotorua-based businesses that are safely navigating their way through the Covid-19 Alert Level rules to continue to look after us by providing safe supply of their products.  Now that Rotorua is at Alert Level 3, some businesses will, as they did at Level 4, continue to deliver goodies direct to your door.  Additionally, Level 3 means other retailers can operate and take online and phone orders, and offer contactless pick ups (awesome news for those that are craving good coffee and those that are wanting some retail therapy!).  

Please note, as per the Covid19 Alert Level rules, all in-store visits will require shoppers to wear a mask, sign into the Covid19 app (or fill out a paper-based register), sanitise and to observe social distancing parameters. 


If your Rotorua-based business is operating safely under Alert Level 3 Covid-19 restrictions and you’d love us to help promote you, please  let us know!  (Click here for Level 3 operating guidelines).

Essential Workers: We appreciate your mahi to our community. To speed up your supermarket shopping experience, visit New World Westend, show your work ID and you can skip any entry queues. Ka rawe, nice one New World!
