Three separate stores were damaged and burgled in Christchurch on Sunday.

Two offenders in a silver station wagon reversed into the back door at Cash Converters Papanui on Main North Rd, at about 3am Sunday morning.

Several phones were stolen along with high-end laptops and a bluetooth speaker.

Then, just after 5am, a car crashed into a bakery on Ferry Rd, causing a 3m x 3m hole in the Bakery and Coffee building.

The car crashed through the next door premises of sewing shop Stitch 'N Time. The offender ran from the scene, leaving the car behind.

Water pipes and the electrical network were badly damaged.

At about 5.30am, vandals broke into and ransacked Head Rush Hair Salon in Addington.

The Lincoln Rd store is offering a $1000 reward for information about the burglary.

Items like colour mixing bowls, colouring brushes, hair colours, developers and Keune hair products were stolen.

Earlier in the week on Wednesday morning, a hair and beauty salon, Wright Hip Hop Trends, was also ransacked in the early hours of the morning.

CCTV footage shows a silver Subaru station-wagon, similar to the vehicle used in yesterday's ram-raids was used.

Police have not yet said whether the incidents are linked.
