Shortly after it opened in Auckland, Topshop has announced it will be opening its second New Zealand retail location in Christchurch. The two-level flagship store is set to open on the corner of Cashel and Colombo streets in early 2017, as part of The Crossing development.

Topshop Christchurch will receive weekly deliveries from the UK, where the retail giant is based. Along with its namesake brand, Topshop will also bring with it the menswear focussed label Topman and fashion labels Unique and Boutique.

“Topshop had plenty of options to site their flagship store in Christchurch but were attracted to the fact The Crossing will be a world-class development, the quality of which has never been seen before in the South Island,” said Philip Carter, Crossing developer, who is also part owner of Top Retail, which has the rights to the Topshop and Topman stores in New Zealand.

The Crossing will include new developments and refitted heritage buildings to offer retail, hospitality and office spaces.
