The Safety Warehouse $100,000 cash drop in Auckland criticised

There are calls to boycott a workwear retailer after an event marketed as a $100,000 cash drop sparked chaos.

More than 1000 people gathered in Auckland’s Aotea Square on Saturday in anticipation for The Safety Warehouse event that aimed to thank New Zealanders for their support throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

But as the cash giveaway promotion came to an end, very few attendees actually reported receiving any money.

Instead, many left with retail vouchers designed to resemble $5 notes, NZ Herald reported.

Managing director Andrew Thorn denied reports the $100,000 figure was not met, and stands by the promotion that has been “unfairly characterised” as using “fake” money.
