An exciting retail experience

Napier is a great leisure destination with superb speciality shopping and a number of high profile national chain stores intermingled with a rich and diverse mix of art and cultural activities seven days a week. Recently the inner city has undergone extensive building renovation and substitution which has significantly altered and enhanced Napier’s streetscape and vibrancy.

Emerson Street is not only bursting with a wide range of stores it’s a pretty street in which to wander while admiring the palm trees and summer flowers.

A much photographed sculpture in Emerson Street “A Wave in Time,” is a bronze statue by Mark Whyte modelled on Sheila Williams and her dog Raven. Sheila led the New Napier Week Carnival parade in 1933 to celebrate the city’s recovery from the earthquake. Across the street another sculpture, also by Mark Whyte, was installed in 2014, that of a young boy climbing a pole and waving to the woman. It’s a great drawcard for tourists who take a break from shopping to be photographed alongside the icon. Besides the main streets, Napier’s side streets and alleyways also offer charm and an eclectic mix of interesting stores that are well worth exploring. Renowned for its thriving cafe culture Napier boasts dozens of eateries which offer an impressive range of culinary styles, from classic to contemporary catering to today’s diverse range of palates.

Look out for a large Viking sign, and several other Vikings, that welcome people to the town in acknowledgement of the Scandinavian settlers who first settled in the area in the 1870s. Dannevirke is the perfect place to make your destination, a town where a warm welcome is guaranteed, and where retailers put their customers first. SH2 is the main thoroughfare, and a busy one at that, with travellers stopping to explore and grab a bit to eat while mingling with locals. The Catching Pen Cafe, winners of the Lower North Island regional people’s choice award as part of the 2017 Meadow Fresh New Zealand Café of the

Year Awards, is also fairly new on the scene. With an eclectic array of businesses offering everything from designer clothes, jewellery and cosmetics to beautiful gifts or items for the home, it’s not surprising that more people are choosing Dannevirke as their ‘one-stop’ place to shop. In addition to essentials like groceries there are fashion and gift stores to browse, a gallery, op shops to seek a bargain, a florist, fruit and vegetables, pet care and rural and farm service providers. Home to some of the best cafes and restaurants in the region, there is no shortage of places to relax and enjoy a delicious coffee or meal; whether you prefer traditional cafe style food, a pub lunch or something more exotic such as Indian, Vietnamese or Sushi - Dannevirke is the perfect destination for some ‘retail therapy’ and wonderful food.

Backyard business

Plan ahead for the cooler months


hopping in its widest context embraces a huge range of goods and services. One area often overlooked is shopping for the garden be it vegetable seedlings, fruit trees, lawn seed, mulch, flowers, tools or bits and pieces for a landscaping project. The last decade or so has seen a huge increase in the range of stock in many garden centres and many also sell a wide range of gifts and homewares. It’s becoming increasingly popular for cafes to set up within garden centres so customers can linger over a coffee while enjoying the relaxed atmosphere surrounded by all things green. Another concept gaining popularity is an on-site florist for that last minute floral gift, perhaps a personal treat or for that all important wedding. Chain stores offer a huge selection of annuals, perennials, herbs, pots and sculptures, water features, bird baths, along with pavers, netting, bark, compost and so on. Associated products

on-site like tools, sprays and seeds are usually available making them a one stop shop. For aspiring gardeners who lack knowledge staff are often only too pleased to give advice on a range of gardening topics. Many chain stores also have plenty of advice and ‘how to’ guides available in-store and on-line. Several nurseries specialize in specific products such as Tree Guys in Otane who stock a wide range of native shrubs and plants and in Clive there’s an outlet dedicated to selling Palm trees. There’s also a local nursery open to the public that has a thriving internet based business and another that only sells organic seedlings. While many of us hunker down for winter, late summer is a good time to think about, and start planning which winter vegetables to grow. It’s also time to think about sprucing up the back yard so it’s all fresh and ready for use when spring arrives. From new garden furniture, to fences, trellis and pavers

there’s a wonderful range of products to inspire. There are plenty of landscape gardeners, tree surgeons and trades people available to assist with design and construction. Don’t forget ‘shopping’ for people to cut and condition your lawn, along with regular section maintenance.
