The name must have been a quick brainstorm after the new owners had recovered from what the decision! It's all a bit strange, and furthermore what does the sale of the company mean for the franchised Constellation Drive store, which is attempting to cut its ties from the Nosh Group?

Summer slowdown?
Paul Keane

The summer season in New Zealand can often be a hiatus period for business. I have always had the view that business activity tends to wind down gradually from Labour Weekend in October through to Christmas, and that post-Christmas it takes all of January, and potentially even up to the end of February, to get business back at full commitment levels. Public holidays for Waitangi Day and Auckland Anniversary can exacerbate this.

Pondering the year ahead
Paul Keane

I have been pondering over the break, part reflection and part expectation.

Just before Christmas last year The Warehouse Group announced a negative profit warning. As I understand it they canned all Christmas celebrations for senior staff and instructed them to focus on sales.
