Kiwis wine and dine in October – Media release

10 November 2020

Retail card spending on eating out recovered in October, as Auckland moved out of COVID-19 alert level 2, Stats NZ said today.

In actual terms, spending at restaurants, cafes, and takeaways (food and beverage services) was up $79 million (8.8 percent) compared to October 2019.

This is the second highest monthly spend for food and beverage services in over 20 years, almost as high as the Christmas peak in December last year.
