Red Light Setting

Auckland Courier Delays

Due to major staffing shortages as a result of Covid, NZ Couriers are having to restrict Auckland freight for the foreseeable future. Your order may take a couple of days for it to be dispatched. Out of Auckland deliveries will still be collected and dispatched as usual.

Auckland Customers: Please note there will be a 2-3 days delay on your order being dispatched from our warehouse as a result. Note delivery delays in the network of 3-4 days once dispatched also. We encourage you to use our click and collect services at Constellation Drive and Lunn Ave if your order is urgent. Simply select your store at the check out and your order will be ready for collection the same day.

All customers: To see where the status of your region is in the network for delivery times please refer to the NZ Couriers dashboard – Click Here

RED LIGHT Settings

During the Red Light setting we have opted to close the Lunn Ave retail store and offer Click and Collect only. This is due to our warehouse being at the same location and needing to operate separate bubbles to ensure business continuity in the event of any Omicron exposure.

Lunn Ave Click and Collect Hours
Tuesday to Friday 10-6.30pm
Saturday 9-5.30pm
(Store closed briefly from 1.30pm-2pm for shift changeover and clean down procedures.)
(Closed Sunday, Monday and Public Holidays)

Constellation Store OPEN
Constellation remains open for both retail and Click and Collect with strict protocols on mask wearing, scanning in, and distancing. Please be patient with our team as they work with reduced staff numbers to cater for two separate shifts.
