New Zealand’s favourite shopping destination Sylvia Park has just gotten better with the opening of its $277 million Level 1 expansion this week.
The launch sees more than 50 new international and local stores open, featuring 10 out of 11 of New Zealand’s favourite retailers. Spanning across 20,000 square metres, or three rugby fields, Level 1 combines the best of shopping and entertainment and boasts a new 8,000 square metre Farmers flagship store.
After a tough year in retail, the strong opening of Sylvia Park’s expansion shines a light on the resilience and strength of the mall’s retailers and the continued confidence in the shopping centre.
“Covid-19 created challenges no one could have predicted, but together with our retailers we’ve delivered a shopping destination we’re incredibly proud of and we think customers will really enjoy,” says Kiwi property CEO Clive Mackenzie.
While the majority of the new stores will open this week, some international tenants will be delayed slightly due to Covid-19.
“The pandemic has caused headwinds for our larger offshore retailers, due to issues getting stock, fitouts and key personnel to New Zealand. As a result, some of these labels will open progressively over the coming weeks,” says Mackenzie.
The stores featuring at Level 1 include: H&M, Sephora, Levi’s, Mecca, Superdry, North Beach, AS Colour, Connor, General Pants, Under Armour, Farmers, Sunglass Hut, Mi Piaci, Body Shop, Bendon, Robin Pierra, Red Current, Origani, Nespresso, Pandora, Ecco, Stirling Women, Hannahs, BNT, Johnny Bigg, Strandbags, The, Booksmart, Identity, Endless Summer, Merric, Allure Beauty, , Postie, , Yoyoso, Fansa Massage, Vivo, San Michalle, Lovely by Skin Institute, Luxury Nails, YD, Lentes & Marcos adrid, Maher Shoes, The Grooming Cave.
