Hi there neighbours
There is a Warehouse trolley been left on our street in Belmont park for several weeks now and it amazes me that it got to where it is in the first place. What’s more amazing is that the Warehouse does not care that it’s there. After phone calls and emails to the company and reassurances that the manager of the Pukekohe branch has been told about it nothing has happened to it. It still rests abandoned and alone on the hot baking sun wondering if it’s last days are to watch lettuces grow from its view or will it be recovered to joyfully stroll up and down the aisles of Pukekohe Warehouse full of where everyone gets a bargain
