Countdown expands glass containers programme due to shipping delays

Countdown supermarkets

Supermarket chain Countdown has expanded its glass containers programme by one week due to customer demand and international shipping delays. 

“With our glass containers programme, we want to be completely transparent with customers,” said Sally Copland, Acting MD at Countdown. “Shipping delays will see our stores throughout the country run low this week as we wait for more containers to arrive in New Zealand.”

Copland said stocks will be back in Countdown stores during the next week and the company is extending the redemption period until February 21. Customers can continue to earn eStamps until January 31. 

This is the first time we have used eStamps and, when it’s completed, around 80 million pieces of paper will have been saved from going into the environment,” she added.
