The first Countdown supermarket opened in 1981 in Christchurch. Since then the chain has grown rapidly and now has shops in all cities - including of course Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, and Christchurch—throughout New Zealand, with 180 in total.
Employing 18,000 people in total and selling products to over 3 million shoppers per week, Countdown focuses on choice, value, and convenience.
Countdown’s online and physical stores often have special offers and promotions, as publicized in its weekly mailer, flyer, and catalogue.
The product range at each Countdown supermarket includes much more than just grocery & liquor items and encompasses more than 20,000 items, including its own brand products. In addition, Countdown also provides insurance and credit card services in the form of the Onecard Visa.
