For those who don't know, New World Supermarkets have been running a nation wide campaign to induce you to shop there for the reward of as many Smeg knives as you can collect stickers for, at the rate of one sticker per $20.00 spent . the scheme was to run from 2 Nov. 2020 to 24 Jan 2021 while stocks last . Sounds really good. However, stocks have run out nation wide days ago with no plans for more , yet as at mid morning yesterday the checkouts at Devonport New World were still issuing smeg stickers for redemption. I might be wrong but to me the fact that the stickers for redemption are still being issued when there are no knives left is misleading and deceptive at best and a clear breach of the fair trading act. wonder what the commerce commission would think of it. 0800 943 600
How are you commemorating Anzac Day? What stories have been passed down through your whānau?
April 25 marks the 106-year anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, one of the most costly campaigns for the Allied Forces during World War I.
Anzac dawn and commemorative services up and down the country are scheduled to get underway after widespread cancellations last year, due to the nation being under Alert Level 4 restrictions.
The NZDF have advised of a reduced presence of military personnel at Anzac services due to deployment at MIQ facilities.
You can check out where the Anzac day services are on this interactive map on the RSA website.
