Supermarket open on Sunday in Rotorua?

We will be in Rotorua and Taupo on a Sunday and will need to pick up food supplies before we head to our skiing lodge, will there be a larger supermarket open in Rotorua rather than wait until we get to Taupo in the afternoon? thanks in advance, Ella

Surprise, surprise all Supermarkets are open in NZ on a Sunday and well into the evening.

There is a Woolworths in Victoria Street and a Countdown in Fenton Street in Rotorua, both on the way out to Taupo. Here's the Google maps for directions;

There is also a few well equipped supermarkets in Taupo if you forget anything, all very handy to your entry into Taupo;

Pak 'n Save on Ruapehu Street & Woolworths in Spa Rd, on the just after you cross the Waikato River and enter into town.

Woolworths, Rotorua no longer exists instead we have two Countdown Supermarkets. One, at leastthe one in Fenton Street, is open 6 a.m. until midnight every day. There is also a New World in Old Taupo Road. There is also a supermarket in Turangi.

Thanks, just making sure everything runs smoothly as my family are relying on me to organise everything,

here in some towns you are likely to not find a supermarket open on a sunday!

Yes Zappers, lots of paint used for changing signage over recent months.Guess who pays in the long run for the name changes? Went to the Farmers Market in Tauranga today and enjoyed it. I was told the one in Mt Maunganui on Sundays is even better.

We could have been rubbing shoulders! I was there too. I usually try to go at least once or twice a month. It's come a long way in a couple of years. I haven't been to the Mount market but now that you mention it I must make a point of checking it out soon.

Next time you're over this way let me know, we could have a coffee(or glass of wine ;)
