Krispy Kreme to open pop-up store in Christchurch

International retailer Krispy Kreme will open a pop-up store at Westfield Riccarton in Christchurch.

The pop-up store, which will be open for two weeks starting September 28, will signal the start of Krispy Kreme’s nationwide roll out through an ongoing partnership with selected BP Connect sites, starting with 12 Christchurch locations from October 5.

Antonio Rivera, New Zealand Retail manager, said they can’t wait to give everyone a taste of the authentic Krispy Kreme experience.

“It’s long been our desire to bring smiles to as many Kiwis as possible by giving them the chance to enjoy a fresh Krispy Kreme doughnut,” Rivera said.

“Whether you’re a big fan of the Original Glazed or prefer yours with a few more sprinkles, the pop- up store will ensure that Christchurch doughnut fans will be the first in the South Island to buy Krispy Kreme locally.”

Adrian McClellan, BP general manager of retail and assets, said they are excited to make Krispy Kreme doughnuts available at more sites across the country.

“Krispy Kreme is incredibly popular with our customers in the upper North Island, so I’m delighted to say that we can now extend that to customers at selected BP Connect sites across Christchurch, Wellington and the rest of the North Island.” 

Krispy Kreme’s first store in the country opened in Auckland in February 2018. Since then Krispy Kreme has opened further retail outlets in Chancery Square, Auckland and Auckland Airport’s Domestic Terminal.
