A homeware shop that failed in Dunedin before is about to
give retail another crack in the city.
Nood general manager Jo Randall said the Nood shop in Princes
St closed in September 2011 after being open nearly four
The shop location made business ''difficult'', especially the
lack of parking, Ms Randall said.
The new shop was set to open on Saturday in a strip mall near
the Dunedin Chinese Garden in Cumberland St.
The shop was chosen because it was near other homeware
retailers and was more practical and visible.
''It's a much better mix of tenants for us and it has great
visibility going south on State Highway 1, and you've got
parking and the delivery at the back door is great. It makes
sense on a lot of levels.''
The shop would employ six staff, a mix of part-time and
full-time positions, she said.
