“This full supermarket is often referred to as New World Chaffers Street, even though its official address is Wakefield Street! New World Chaffers Street is about 9-10 minutes walk from City Bach. This modern, vibrant supermarket has anything you could wish for whether to feed a family, entertain, go on a picnic, or just simply self-catering if you're visiting Wellington. The delicatessen section is a winner. The food always looks to delicious. They usually give samples to try before you buy.”
