Four Square supermarket in Katikati

Four Square is a chain of supermarkets in New Zealand that was founded by John Heaton Barker.[1] Their symbol, "Mr 4 Square", was developed in the 1950s. The image is often closely associated with the art of New Zealand artist Dick Frizzell, who has used the iconic character in many of his works. Four Square operates over 280 stores around the country. Some Four Square supermarkets exist in Australia.[2]
