Countdown Greenlane Now Even Greener

8 June 2018: Countdown’s upgrade of its busy Greenlane store is now complete, and with an emphasis on energy efficiency the refreshed store expects to reduce its energy use by up to 40 per cent.

The focus on reducing the store’s carbon footprint has included installing the latest energy efficient fittings, LED lighting and a hybrid refrigeration system.  The store has also installed two benches for customer seating made out of 21,000 recycled plastic bags and other soft plastics.

The new hybrid refrigeration, dual path heating, ventilation and air conditioning system together l will deliver a total energy reduction of up to 40 per cent due to lower global warming potential gases and chemicals.

Countdown Greenlane Store Manager, Paul Maxwell, says he is proud to be part of a store that is making a difference environmentally while still providing customers with a great shopping experience.

“I am also really delighted that we’re the first Countdown store to install two bench seats made from recycled soft plastics.  While the 21,000 plastic bags that have been used for the seats are just a small step, I hope our customers can feel proud of the difference they’re making by recycling their soft plastics when they shop at Countdown.”

The new store also features some exciting new additions including additional self-service checkouts, a new wine cellar which holds Countdown’s largest wine selection in the country, a brand new Countdown Pharmacy with Countdown’s standard $2.50 prescription charge, as well as a complete review of the products and layout within the store.

“We’d like to thank all our shoppers for their patience during the refurbishment.  Your Countdown team is looking forward to bringing an even better shopping experience to the the community,” he says.
