The new owner of the Manakau Dairy is local to Waikawa Beach. Opening hours are now from 6 am to 6 pm, 7 days a week.

A Horowhenua store has changed hands for the first time in nearly two decades, with the new owner bringing her culinary skills into the mix.

Sonya Martin has taken over The Manakau Store …

Sonya says she’ll maintain a local focus, as well as adding a broader range to the store and increasing its food offerings, as she has many years’ experience in the food industry. …

She and her partner and children have owned a section nearby in Waikawa for 14 years, and moved back full time three years ago. …

A new cold cabinet display is planned for the main counter, which will be stocked with homemade sandwiches and salads, there are muffins and other creations already in stock, and she’ll continue to supply the popular pies the store gets from Temptations Patisserie in Ōtaki. …

She offers gluten-free options, carefully prepared using different equipment to gluten-containing foods, as well as vegetarian options, and stocking items that are organic or reduced sugar.
