A major New Zealand retailer is confident shoppers will be back sooner rather than later.
Under Alert Level Four Briscoes can deliver essential items to customers – but its stores remain closed.
Group Managing Director Rod Duke told Mike Hosking they aren’t seeing the pent-up demand like last time – probably because people don’t think the lockdown will last
He says he’s more confident this lockdown.
