Remember we are the only locally owned bottlestore north of the river and have the best stocked bottlestore in town for all your supplies.  

We have bottlestore vouchers for sale which can be used at any Super Liquor Centre outlet in New Zealand and make great gifts.      

The members loyalty system operates in the bar and cafe as well as the bottlestore which means that every time you make a purchase in those areas you have 2% of the cost credited to your loyalty account  but you must produce your membership card in order to qualify so we urge everyone to carry their card whenever on the Club premises.    

The bottlestore  accepts Ruralco and Farmlands members credit cards and all customers are welcome to use these if applicable. It is not necessary to be a member of the Club in order to use the bottlestore.  Remember to click on the Liquor Centre icon on this site for specials which may not be advertised elsewhere.      

We have free pool games every Sunday all day in our bar with all members and their guests welcome.     

Club members qualify for a 15% discount when obtaining a warrant of fitness for your car from VTNZ. Show your membership card  and you will get the discount and this club will receive 2.5%. West side Hire offers club members a 10% discount on their services and there are discounts available at Assure motels.    

 Where partners qualify for a joint subscription we can combine your loyalty points onto one card for convenience. Please contact the office if you would like this to be actioned.
