Monday, November 29 - Westland Anniversary Day

Westland’s tourist destinations make it ideal for camping and spending time in nature. Be on the look out for regional promos in hotel and lodging, restaurants, and other provincial activities.

Just a quick history, Westland was separated from Canterbury in 1868 as an autonomous county under the jurisdiction of parliament. Since 1873, it has been a full-fledged province with legislative rights.

Sunday, December 26 - Boxing Day 

A day after Christmas, families and friends go out to relax, frolic at the beach and enjoy the rest of the day. It's also a perfect time to enjoy the summer before getting back to work. 

Many shops also offer holiday promos on clothes, homewares and gadgets, with discounts lasting until January of the following year.

Tuesday, January 4 - Day After New Year’s

If you fell short shopping gifts for Christmas, grab this chance to get bigger deals and discounts. Shops and online retailers typically use this time to clear out last season's inventory to make room for the new year's.

How does COVID affect retail in NZ?

As New Zealand and the rest of the world adapt to the new normal, retailers are also expected to observe sanitary guidelines, especially during the holidays.

In Alert Level 3 areas, QR scans, contactless payments, and the use of sanitisers are being implemented.

While it is still unsafe to go outside, it is best to shop for your needs and requirements online.
