Check out this winner of regional supermarket contest It was a one-two for Miramar as Wellington City swept the podium at Monday night’s regional Checker of the Year competition at Shed 6 on the waterfront. A total of 83 checkout operators from New World and Pak’nSave stores across the Wellington region went till-to-till in Foodstuffs North Island’s 70th annual Checker of the Year competition, which has attracted a record number of entries this year. Ashleigh Quayle from New World Miramar took the title, with colleague Kendall Mcilrath the runner-up. In addition their supermarket won an award for top-scoring store. Sean Pool from New World Churton Park took the certificate for third place. The checkers competed on stage against one another while being judged by a team of six senior Foodstuffs staff. Checkers were assessed on their speed, presentation, customer service and accuracy as they scanned 30 items as quickly as possible, while also staying friendly and composed. Foodstuffs North Island CEO Chris Quin said this competition celebrates

the skills of those who are at the front-line of the public’s experience of their local supermarkets. “Our checkout operators are the face of our business, and this event is an opportunity to shine the spotlight on them and show our sincere appreciation for the contribution they make every day to our success in meeting customer expectations,” Chris says. “The fact that this is the 70th anniversary of the competition, and that it is bigger than ever before

with over 120 stores participating, reflects the value that our staff see in it. It gets quite competitive, but is also a chance to have fun and build relationships.” Ashleigh will go on to compete against the winners of the nine other regional heats held over June-July. Each regional winner will be mystery shopped between August and November to determine the overall North Island Checker of the Year winner and two runners-up, which will be announced in November.
