N3 is the old "Government Stores Board", that is now a trading network using business and organisation members to get bulk buying power and all affiliated members of PNZ are members.
Each PNZ-affiliated Club is allocated one card, which is in the name of the current Secretary (as advised to PNZ). The Secretary (or other designated office bearer) MUST keep track of the card at all times.
Your Club, and all individual members within the club, are able to access significant discounts from a range of suppliers, simply by presentating the card.
Changes to the list of suppliers occur from time to time, and are notified by N3. - Bunnings (e.g. string, nails, spray for terrain marking)
The most useful ones for Petanque Clubs are likely to be:
- NZ Safety (uniforms)
- Noel Leemings
- Plumbing World
- Southern Hospitality (catering stuff, e.g. serviettes, paper cups; cleaning supplies)
- Ideal Electrical
- Office Max
- Packaging House
Individuals can use the card at the above stores, as well as places such as
- Avis Car Hire
- Budget Rent a Car
- Big Save Furniture
- Liquor King
- BP & Caltex service stations
