City Overview

Auckland City is the main retail hub of New Zealand, generating about a third of the country's total annual retail turnover. Auckland is the largest and most populous metropolitan urban centre in the country, which is home to around 1.6 million people or roughly a third of New Zealand's total population. Nearly 40% of all retail stores in the country are located here. Auckland's retail landscape is comprised of a mix of both traditional and modern European and American influenced retail format archetypes. In the CBD there is the typical Main Street and strip retail shopping with boutique and specialty stores. General, discount, and takeaway stores are typically found in inner-city and outlying suburban townships, which also feature supermarkets chains and ethnic grocery stores that service the local community. Auckland also has a large number of shopping mall types with Regional and Large format/bulk retail centres being the largest. These are typically located in suburban locations with large population bases and expanding residential areas.
