Hi all, I'm a bit out of the loop. Does anyone know which Topcatch shops are still operating in Auckland, if any? Cheers

That's the listed number, but it's not recognized when you call it.

I live around the corner - I'll drop in and ask when I pass by again.

One of the guys in the Whangaparaoa store told me that the previous owners had bought the business back.  I suspect it was partially because they manufactured the Topcatch branded bait etc. so didn't want to lose a channel to market. (vertically integrated supply chain etc.)

I may be able to drop in over the next couple of days to check.  (I have also heard they are honouring vouchers previously sold)

Clevedon was open when I was there last October, they were busy as the day I was there

Righto......following up with what I said I'd do.

Dropped into the Topcatch Whangaparaoa store and asked about the dead link phone number on the web page for Topcatch that I posted initially.

Cut a long story short - YES have been re-purchased and the original number is tied up into the liquidated business and they are playing hardball in not removing it.

Met new owner - RICH
This is the current and updated number for the store.

09 906 3927

I have no affiliation to the store - just trying to help original poster.


For future reference this is the link to the Topcatch website.

Hit store locator and it brings up current info viz Whangaparaoa and all other stores.
