Fodor's Expert Review Re:START City Mall

Christchurch Crafts

It was only ever meant to be a temporary solution but this quirky shopping precinct with its colorful funky look has been kept in place for just a bit longer, because it's just so cute. It is set to close by January 2017 to make way for new shopping precincts now being built nearby. Made from shipping containers, there are more than 40 shops here, anchored by Ballantynes, one of the country's better-known department stores. There are trendy fashion boutiques and great cafés, and there's free Wi-Fi.
