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 years.

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.
