New Zealand - Shopping
New Zealand has many types of shopping from the large retail chains including 'The Warehouse' to the great local markets in the Auckland area.
New Zealand has most other major brands and a few that are New Zealand born including 'Canterbury' and 'Kathmandu'
You will find less of the souvenir shops at the major scenic sights, which is refreshing if you have traveled the world.
Enjoy, and take some of New Zealand home with you.
