Darfield’s revamped and renewed Four Square is now officially open.

For owners Kelvin and Delwyn Taege, it was the culmination of months of planning. The Taege family has run the business for almost four decades.

The new premises are the first to roll-out electronic shelf labels, LED lighting and two self-checkouts and the supermarket is also twice the size of the previous supermarket and has more than 70 car parks.

Kelvin Taege said there was a “real buzz” from customers entering the store for the first time.

“The opening was a huge success! We had around 100 people come out and join us in the morning for the opening celebration.”

“Our shoppers love the full product range the store has, and many were thrilled they could finally get their hands on a Lotto ticket or two. The self-checkouts were also a big hit and were in use the minute the doors opened — everyone wanted to give them a go.

“It’s been great to see the benefits of the ESL, as a lot of the products on special have been racing out the door, which means we’ve been on our toes keeping shelves stocked for happy customers.”
