The New Zealand retail landscape is undergoing considerable change. Zoltan Moricz and Grant Unsworth from CBRE assess what's driving the arrival of many international retailers on Kiwi shores.
Popular burger chain In-N-Out burger made its second-only New Zealand debut in a very limited pop-up store in Auckland today. The 68-year-old American chain store has settled in Grey Lynn for one day only, located at Pocket Bar and Kitchen, 592 Great North Road.
Lines of shoppers snaked through Auckland’s Sylvia Park Shopping Centre as they waited for international chain Zara to open its first Kiwi store at 9.30am. Inside, they were greeted with 1,850 square metres of commercial space, bearing the very latest European-influenced fast fashion.
