One Warkworth’s perennial campaign to get us all to shop local has suffered a grave setback.
A Mahurangi Matters reporter stepped into the Warkworth branch of Noel Leeming recently to purchase an electric shaver – no doubt to enhance what he considers to be his youthful good looks.
Things went along swimmingly, until the shop assistant, after extolling the virtues of various shavers, suddenly asked if our reporter was a Gold Card holder.
Our reporter emerged from Mr Leeming’s, sans shaver, with steam visibly emerging from his ears. It’s enough to make you shop in Albany.
