Although shopping in New Zealand is not
as thrilling as Hong Kong or Singapore, there are still some areas in
which New Zealand is the number one destination for. Bargains for clothes,
electrical goods, and the like may not be as good as those for dairy produce
and arts and crafts. Nevertheless, New Zealand does have some excellent
choices of brand names that are simply irresistible.
The three main shopping areas in New Zealand
are Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch. Auckland's Queen Street alone
consists of shops selling almost everything, from electrical stores to
music shops, boutiques to warehouses, and souvenir shops to duty free
stores. Brands such as Sports Girl, Country Road, Glassons, and Principle
are available on this street itself and during the summer and winter sales,
bargains are hard to resist.
