Dunedin store Hallenstein Brothers is on the move.
General manager Glenn Hunter said the boys and men's clothing
shop was moving ''a few doors down'' George St to a 420sq m
shop in mid-September.

A flagship store was bigger, with innovative lighting,
displays and audio-visual elements including large television
screens, projectors and audio.

Dunedin was selected because the company had been in Dunedin
for 140 years and the business traded ''very well'' in the
city, he said.
