On The Spot Service Stores

The 'On The Spot' convenience banner group boasts 98 stores in key locations around the South Island, all catering for local everyday requirements.

Drop into any of the distinctive magenta On The Spot stores or blue On The Spot service station outlets, to top up your groceries, enjoy a drink, grab a paper or treat yourself.

You'll find the same leading grocery brands you get in supermarkets, including our Pams own brand for those times when you want convenience, quality and good value. Add to that, our service with a smile, and you have a winning convenience solution.

On The Spot stores are locally-owned and operated, so best-placed to serve locals' needs.  


On The Spot offers a four-weekly promotional programme that's fully supported with eye-catching point of sale specials. The promotional cycle supports both centrally warehoused products via Warehouse Withdrawal, and DSD suppliers with direct-to-store promotional terms.

Please contact the Group Manager if you wish to discuss promotional opportunities further.


All new lines should be presented to the On The Spot team and Foodstuffs South Island Merchandise department, who are together responsible for convenience ranging decisions. If approved, a Foodstuffs article number will be allocated to your product. The emphasis is on the supplier to achieve minimum stocking to continue the ongoing host support of that product. Should a product fall below the minimum requirements it could be delisted.

Price Increases/Decreases

All pricing changes are to be communicated to the Foodstuffs FOBL team and On The Spot Group Manager. A minimum of six weeks' notification is required from the effective date.

Please refer to the Pricing Guidelines Information.

Disputes Protocol

Foodstuffs South Island Limited reserves the right to challenge and take action against any vendor seen not to be acting in the best interest of the group. Payment disputes should be referred to the Financial Controller in the Finance and Administration Division.
