Looking in detail at the lotto fit out requirements for NZ lottery retailers today and I saw why the costs to the retailers are considerably lower than in Australia. The base is the fit in the shop, not purpose built. Into this is dropped a Lotto unit. There is flexibility on what can be in or near the area. The total space allocation is adjusted by the size of the store. From what I understand the whole process is co-operative and respectful.
This photo is from a Whitcoulls store on Cuba Street in Wellington that I visited today.
What you can see is the entire in-store commitment to lotto. No need for the writing desk or other items Aussie retailers are often forced to find room for without reasonable return.
The Tatts requirement for space in newsagencies is considerably different to what I see here in NZ. On The Run in SA appear to not have the same requirements / obligations as newsagents.
