New World Smeg knife collection scheem

Don from Bayswater

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

Missing French teen Eloi Rolland: Friends and family still have no answers a year on

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

In 2019, French teenager Eloi Rolland arrived in New Zealand to study. He partied, got a job and made friends. But six months later he disappeared without a trace. A year on, police say “his fate remains unknown” and his case looks set to be referred to the coroner. Caroline Williams reports.

During his time in Auckland, Rolland went to the zoo, enjoyed nights out, worked at a popular bar, dabbled in modelling and, with friends, visited Piha on the rugged west coast.

Before his disappearance, Rolland expressed to his family that he wished to visit Piha again, and on March 6 last year, he did just that.

He has not been seen or heard from since.

“Each day we feel more and more worried and more helpless," his father Thierry Rolland tells Stuff.
