New variety store full of surprises on level one

Chocka Bucket is a variety store opening on Level One, across from New World Metro Shore City. This is a proven retail offering with three other stores in Auckland. Chocka Bucket owner Stephen Kim explains that the name ‘Chocka’ is from ‘chock-a-block’ which means full enough to explode. They will have lots of inexpensive fun goods, various kinds of products from everyday life necessities to special gifts for special occasions.
In explaining their customer experience ambitions Stephen summed it up as follows. “We wish our customer's buckets are ‘chocka’ when they shop from us with satisfaction”.

Shore City parking gets ticketless and much easier!

Shore City now has ticketless parking. A feature of Shore City has always been their ample parking of over 800 spaces and now going totally ticketless makes things even easier for customers who will no longer have to wait for a ticket on entry, or enter it into the machine as they leave.
“This new ticketless process is based around an advanced license plate recognition system,” explains Shore City Shopping Centre Manager Jan Walker. “Your registration number is now your ticket. To pay for parking you simply enter your rego number and pay at any pay station situated conveniently around the Centre and pay with credit, debit card or cash. Not only is this more environmentally friendly with no ticket, it will also mean a better customer experience as it is much easier. We have had great comments from happy customers since we made the change.”
Parking pay stations are located at the Level One car park entry, on Level Two outside Glassons, and on Level Four outside Regal Drycleaners (at the top of the escalator) and outside Les Mills.
