Online stores open during the Lockdown in New Zealand

Fresh baked bread

Not sure which shops are providing essential services online that deliver to Auckland? Initially you could only shop online at supermarkets and chemists as these businesses provide “essential services”.  On 30 March 2020 a decision was made to allow businesses to sell essential consumer products online (or by phone), provided they were sold in a way that protects the public and minimises the risk of COVID-19 spreading. This means in addition to being able to purchase groceries food you can now purchase products online that keep you warm and replace key household appliances for home delivery. This may include for example: blankets, heaters, kitchenware and appliances, whiteware, computer equipment and mobile phones.

  1. This is very useful, thank you. Animates are also open for delivery of pet essentials. I just booked a regular monthly delivery of our dog’s special diet food. They gave me 15% off and free delivery. I wish I’d known about it sooner.

  2. I buy my specialty kidney care, cat food from this site. They are really good. Due to the current situation, they say it’s about a 7 day wait, (they usually deliver 1-3 days).

  3. Life pharmacy can also deliver prescriptions so worth a phone call if you don’t want to leave the house. (I don’t know if this is all stores but my 2 local definitely are)

  4. PetDirect.co.nz are a NZ owned company based in Auckland and are sending Pet food, flea and work treatment, cat litter etc during this time. Will send any order received before 4 the same day.

  5. You can also add Bakewell Creamery that delivers fruit and veg box, raw milk and free range egga

    • Thanks for letting us know Marine. That’s great to know as we have just run out of milk in our house. Will definitely add you onto the list.

    • Richard it is only temporarily suspended and will be back shortly according to their website.

    • Yes their online store is open Deepika, but due to a huge demand in online orders there website says there will be delays in processing orders.
      There physical stores are still closed.

    • You can get some arts and crafts supplies from Warehouse Stationary. Toy and games are not considered to be essential non-food consumer products by MBIE.

  6. Is there anywhere to buy supplies for teaching from home. Our home has used nearly all our paint and paper with kindy aged children. I am very surprised I have been unable to find school art products in essential items. Thank you.

  7. This is a great list, thank you. I used Westmere Butchers. Fast delivery and great meat.

  8. Hi there, I bought some kids shoes on NZSale but they won’t deliver because it is not an essential item. Iam confused as my boy is getting frozen foot he is 2 year old. Any advice? Thanks

    • Hi Claudia, although a lot of stores are open online they are not necessarily shipping yet. Stores can only ship essential items if they have been approved by the MBIE and then only for certain products that they sell not their entire range. Have a look at the kids clothing section on our site and you will find some stores that are open online and delivering.
