Dress-Smart Centre Expands and Upgrades


Dress-Smart Centre Expands and Upgrades

Dress-Smart shoppers will, this week, appreciate the benefits of approximately 1,000 square metres of additional retail space. They will also enjoy renovated restroom and parking facilities, just completed.

Retailers Puma, Asics and new tenant Kathmandu will occupy the newly constructed space and the Converse retail space has also increased in size.

In addition to the new retail area, restrooms have been fully renovated and installed for the convenience of customers. The new facilities include two disabled toilets and an additional, dedicated parenting room. Beneath the expansion the car parking is now undercover – which has proved necessary to accommodate Auckland’s changeable weather conditions.

Dress-Smart Centre Manager Gaylene Powell says, “The continued expansion of Dress-Smart is part of an on going programme to improve the centre and increase our comprehensive retail offering to customers.”

Paul Stern, a spokesperson for Kathmandu, says the retailer’s move to a bigger store within the Centre will enable it to offer shoppers a wider range of apparel, all on one level.

The complex originally opened in October 1995, and was then a quarter of its current size. As the concept of outlet shopping took hold, the site has been enlarged and now includes a well-utilised tourist shuttle which collects shoppers from a number of city hotels and brings them to Dress-Smart several times a day.
