Noel Leeming will reopen its flagship store in Christchurch tomorrow, following a $1 million facelift.
The revamped Moorhouse Avenue store will provide a “state-of-the-art retail space”, following the opening of the company’s first Christchurch facility in 1973.
With technology at its core - including a dedicated Apple shop - the store will feature a new services hub, smart home display as well as wall display wi-fi speaker technology systems for the home.
Noel Leeming CEO Tim Edwards says that this is the biggest store refurbishment project the company has ever carried out, providing the people of Christchurch with "a number of firsts".
“Christchurch holds a special place in our history and we’ve come a long way since the VCRs and bulky colour televisions on which the business was founded,” he says.
“Today, customers can come into store and see how to use their smartphones to control things like lighting in their home, escape to a Virtual Reality world and experience new places in 360 degrees without actually travelling there.
“Our new-look services hub means customers can interact with our specialist service team members in a dedicated zone.
"Plus at our connected solutions hub, we can help customers connect their devices through mobile or broadband."
