🍸🍷🍺Another conversation regarding purchasing alcohol🍺🍷🍸

Fiona from Henderson

So, there I was trying to decide where we could purchase some affordable alcohol for Christmas WITHOUT going to a Trust owned shop and in an area that I/we go to or through regularly.
We know that Countdown Mt Roskill (Stoddard Road) sell beer & wine, but can't remember if it's a Trust operation or not, I don't think it is.
The discussion wandered off into where the boundaries are for West Auckland i.e. which suburbs fall into the West Auckland catchment.
So I went to find out (see link below):
List of Suburbs in West Auckland:
Anawhata
Bethells Beach
Glen Eden
Glendene
Green Bay
Henderson
Herald Island
Hobsonville
Huia
Karekare
Kelston
Konini
Kumeu
Laingholm
Lincoln
McLaren Park
Massey
New Lynn
Oratia
Piha
Ranui
Royal Heights
Sunnyvale
Swanson
Te Atatu
Te Atatu Peninsula
Te Atatu South
Titirangi
Waiatarua
Westgate
West Harbour
Western Heights
Whenuapai

Well that discovery brought on a whole new conversation regarding The Trusts.
As Mt Albert doesn't fall into this catchment, how can the Trusts put a store within Pak'nSave (New North Rd)?
Do The Trust create their own boundaries just so they can extend their revenue reach under the guise of Mt Albert Pak'nSave being close to a suburb (New Lynn or Kelston)?
Something doesn't smell right here?

Are you a fan of fast fashion?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

Many of us grew up flocking to Glassons, Hallenstein's, Cotton On and Just Jeans for our hardy perennials - jeans, t-shirts, summer dresses - and some of us still do.

But we're increasingly becoming aware that buying a $20 t-shirt that won't last the distance isn't that great for the environment.

While some of us are pledging to only buy second hand or to invest in statement pieces - more expensive items that will last a long time- not all of us have that luxury.

We're wanting to speak to someone who isn't giving up their fast fashion any time soon, whether it's for economic or style reasons, personal choice or indifference to the environment. Maybe you're a student who likes the choice chain store fashion brings, or perhaps you're a parent whose children are growing too fast to risk splashing out on expensive clothing.

If this sounds like you, please email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz.
