Howick and Pakuranga Times
Botany and Ormiston Times : Howick and Botany Times, Wed, Nov 7
The opening of Magness Benrow’s third store at The Hub, Botany in April 2005 coincided with the company’s diamond jubilee year, proof that from small beginnings come great things. The new shop was the second Mag- ness Benrow for the local district. It’s sister store had been successfully oper- ating in the Highland Home Centre since 1997 under the management of Catherine Magness, grand-daughter of Roly Magness who opened his first shop in tiny Eden Terrace premises in 1945. Roly later re-located to Albert Street where the shop became a landmark business before merging with Benrow’s in Greenlane in 1987. From there it continued to be a market leader, oper- ating under the directorship of Roly’s son John Magness. It was Catherine and her brother Andrew who jointly set up the new outlet at The Hub which offered easy access and ample parking. As at the Pakuranga shop, the new store stocked a wealth of whiteware, small appli- ances, televisions, entertainment and audio systems and still does so today. Renowned for quality products and competitive pricing, Magness Ben- row’s great weekly specials have saved shoppers hundreds of dollars on lead- ing brands such as Fisher & Paykel, De Longhi, Whirlpool, Panasonic, Philips, JVC, LG and many more. And most Aucklanders are familiar with the voices of John and Adrienne spelling out the latest ‘best buy’ on radio. With the Hub location proving an outstanding success, Magness Benrow decided to amalgamate the two local stores into one leading outlet with The Hub site on Ti Rakau Drive, at Botany, being overwhelmingly the preferred location. It remains at the forefront of appliance retailing today and has been a strong supporter of the Times. www.times.co.nz Howick and Pakuranga Times — Celebrating 40 Years, 2012 — 33 Repower now for Summer.

In our case, our student stories were given awe- some exposure and this in turn moti- vated them further. The Times has certainly supported Howick College students’ aim for excellence and for that it should be commended! – Iva Ropati, Howick College principal Schools always have interesting things happening and stories of success to share. The Howick and Pakuranga Times has been a very important vehi- cle for such stories for us. I’d like to thank the Times for its interest and support. Well done for 40 years com- munity involvement. – Allan Vester, Edgewater College principal As a truant officer, I have had the fortune of being able to help in the darkest corners of our very diverse community, while as a coach and par- ent I’ve had the privilege of experienc- ing some of the brightest moments and memories. Thank you Howick and Pakuranga Times team for being part of this. – Tu Edwards, school attendance officer, college rugby coach Elim Christian College deeply values its relationship with the Howick and Pakuranga Times. This fine publication has faithfully supported and worked with us through our tragedy, cel- ebrated with us student achievements and journeyed with us in the setting up of our junior campus. Congratula- tions Times on this milestone. – Murray Burton, Elim Christian College principal Congratulations on a fine milestone. Just thinking back about how our school collaborated with the How- ick and Pakuranga Times on the Safe Homes Project. This was another great initiative by your newspaper, to involve the responsible members of society to help keep our students and wider community safe. Thank you for being such a proactive role model for our community. – Alan McIntyre, Owairoa Primary School principal Congratulations on your milestone. Manukau Institute of Technology also recently turned 40, so we move for- ward together. On behalf of everyone at MIT, thank you for the wonderful coverage you have given us over the years. We value our relationship with you and seeing our students’ successes on your pages is always exciting. – Peter Brothers, MIT chief executive Educationalists speak their mind Magness Benrow stands test of time April 2011, Elim Christian College principal, Murray Burton, at the opening of a memorial climbing wall, commemorating the loss of life during the Mangatepopo tragedy.
