    Happened to be near Barrington WHS who advised me they were only a small store, and only larger stores such as Eastgate stocked them.
    So off to Eastgate I went.Nice lady on her way upstairs for her break, told me very clearly they did not stock compasses.
    So once she was out of ear shot, I spoke to the lovely lady on click and collect.
    I did point out I did not look up their website,just googled compasses,and saw WHS's advert.Would she mind checking.?
    Yes we have them,last stand in the back corner.
    Thank you very much.
    Just getting them to observe where the sun is around noon (around 12.30) would have saved you roughly $12 ; Anyway - hope they are able to deal with the magnetic declination ...

    Some think The Warehouse a pack of bastards

    Sort of agree ...it’ll hurt them long term ...another sign of terminal decline of the business model.

    I hadn't heard of "together.org.nz" before ... I see it's described as:

    "Welcome to Together - the online campaigning arm of the New Zealand Union movement"

    Uh-huh.

    The retail world continues to change so makes complete sense for the Warehouse to also adjust. They seem to be closing low performing stores, reassigning some specialist staff into more general roles, trimming staff at all levels, offering different roster options, and focusing on online sales and fulfillment.

    Union is doing its job, trying to keep members in work.

    Company owners might legitimately wonder what additional impact minimum wage increases have on decisions.

    Easy to start a business in New Zealand. Common enough in the past for laid off staff to start their own enterprise. They have just had a good lesson in cost and risk management, should stand them in good stead.
