OPINION:

The Warehouse was told to shut down on Wednesday by the Government (Jacinda Ardern) after The Warehouse announced they’re an “essential service” to stay open during the four-week Coronavirus lockdown a.k.a Unite Against COVID-19’s campaign to stop the virus from spreading.

The Warehouse is in a lot of trouble, especially from the share market as the NZX Product Operations HALTED their co-operation from business any-longer. At an alert level, four only businesses that are essential can be open during lockdown to prevent the spread of Coronavirus in New Zealand after cases rose sharply from 0 to 205 as of 25th of March, 2020.

The fine from the NZX Market operations can be up to $500,000 if a market/business is found to break the rules or laws set in place specifically for Coronavirus. If the company has gained profits from the breaking rule, the fine can be up to $800,000+

The Warehouse said they’re disappointed in the Governments decision, but literally this mass shutdown would be useless without the Governments strict new rules to fight against Coronavirus & to keep the numbers as low as possible.

Retailers like Bunnings, PlaceMakers and Mitre 10 can stay open to trade customers for essential purposes only.

“These retailers play an important part in the construction supply chain, but they cannot sell goods to the general public.”

Dairies can continue to operate but must ensure strict physical distancing rules for customers. Stocks said dairies sold essential food items like bread and milk, often to the elderly who may not be able to get to a supermarket.

“If any dairy breaks the rules, we will shut it down. If there is evidence of systemic abuse, we will remove them from the list of the essential services.”

All restaurants, cafes and bars must close all aspects of their operation, including delivery. That means food delivery services like Uber Eats and Deliver Easy cannot operate either. However, the distribution of food that is not pre-cooked will be allowed.

“We are doing further work on online ordering of non-food products for home delivery to see if this type of retail can be conducted safely. We will update advice on this once further decisions are made,” Stocks said.

Liquor stores will also need to close, except where they operate in licensing trust areas. Businesses that are a critical part of the supply chain for essential services are also able to continue operating but must do so in a safe way.
