COVID-19 Update

We’d like to assure our customers that On the Spot Stores have a strong plan in place around Coronavirus (COVID-19) which includes keeping our people and customers safe

– our focus is very much on ensuring New Zealanders have the essential products they require and we are working with our suppliers to make this happen every day. At store and throughout the supply chain, staff are across all health and safety protocols as advised by health authorities to keep themselves and customers safe.

This includes cleaning and disinfecting measures which are in place across all stores and are aligned with food safety practices. 

We would like to stress that none of these measures are being used to replace good hand washing techniques and personal care as advised by the Ministry of Health – the health measures outlined by the Ministry are the best way for the public to protect themselves.

These measures can be found here. ( see they below link.

We remind customers to please shop as you normally would. Whilst in store you may see some limits on lines of products – this is to ensure that there is enough for everyone. 

We’re grateful for your cooperation and recognise that these are unsettling times, and we want you to know that the safety of our customers and staff are our priority.

 The On the Spot Team.
