My standout is Ballantynes where you will find the best of the best offered in a department store format. Normally, I shy away from this shopping experience because it is sometimes overwhelming for me as a shopper. Ballantynes does department store on small scale only offering the highest quality products keeping the selection small but very choice. A perk: They offer local delivery perfect for a rainy shopping day with the children and you cannot drag all of that wetness into the car. I have just checked out their site and it is clean and simple even offering a bit more than the store in some departments. From soft as silk New Zealand wool to Chanel miracle creams, this store is my new bestie. I was not here before the City Center befell the unfortunate quakes but today, this is a site to be seen. I have shopped all over the world, including of course America where the shopping mall was perfected, and the people of Christchurch should be proud. Proud that there is certainly nothing like this on earth. You would have to see it to really get a feel for it.
They take Eco-Luxury to a whole new level here.) Shopping is not the same on the other side of the world and with Cashel Mall, it is better.

Cheers & Happy Shopping!
