i was wondering if y'all could tell me what the equivalent NZ stores are to the SA/UK (if you have lived there too) ones

so i figure the most known stores in SA/UK are (please add any to the list):


SA
Woolworths
Edgars
Queenspark
Mr Price
Ackermans

UK
Marks and Spencers
Next
H&M
Top Shop

thanks in advance!

:)




Hopeful:
There is nothing like Woolworths here.  :(

Edgars is maybe like Farmers over here - sort of.

The rest, I can't think of anything like them here either. I miss Mr Price I must say.

But there are great DIY shops here!

The Warehouse is like Game - also with the annoying trend of not having prices on half their stuff, but I love The Warehouse, it's fun to walk around and have a look.

vulpes:
really? yikes man.

<seriously re-thinks moving to nz>

 ;D

zatexnz:
There are plenty of other stores though, so you don't have a lack of choice. 

As for quality foods like Woolworths food section, a "new" store (been going for 5 years, and they have 5 branches, opening a new one in Hamilton), is Nosh Food Market.  They've tried to copy Whole Foods Market from the States.  They specialize in quality foods like WW in SA did. 

Anna007:
Woolworths - none  :(
Edgars - maybe Farmers
Queenspark - none
Mr Price - none  :confused:
Ackermans - maybe The Warehouse
