The Mount Mainstreet, Tauranga 3116, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand
If you love boutique shopping, Mount Maunganui’s ‘mainstreet’ is the ideal place for you.
Away from indoor malls or humming CBD you’ll find a relaxed, vibrant shopping area that stretches 500m along Maunganui Rd between Banks Ave and Mount Drury Reserve.
You’ll find leading women’s fashion stores here – hot local designers sit alongside premier national and international clothing labels in high-end boutiques dotted along the Mount’s main street.
The Mount exudes a laidback atmosphere and the phoenix palm trees which line the main street are a reminder you’re only a short walk away from the sand and surf. Unlike other shopping destinations in New Zealand, there’s no pressure to dress up here. Stroll around in whatever clothing you feel comfortable in, then kick off y jandals and try on an evening gown and killer heels.
