The shopping in Albany is a two-for-one kind of deal where you can stroll in air-conditioned bliss at Westfield Albany or pop into the spacious storefronts at the outdoor Albany Mega Centre – they are a minute’s drive away from each other.
You’ll find the usual retail suspects in Westfield Albany as well as one-of-a-kind storefronts. Try on some new wardrobe pieces at Rodd & Gunn, Flo & Frankie, Max and Barker’s. For a more boutique selection, flick through hand-picked retro digs from the 80s to 00s at LA Vintage or peruse the dizzying array of brands at New Zealand’s first-ever Glue Store. On a more whimsical note, you’ll find crystals, fantasy giftware and mystical wonders at Rivendell.
Whether you’re into shoes, beauty or jewellery, Westfield Albany has got you sorted. Step into some stylish Vans, Sketchers or kicks from Number One Shoes. Try on diamonds at leading jewellery brands such as Walker & Halls and Swarovski, with a handful of sparkly stores all a quick stroll from each other. Stock up on the beauty essentials (or just a wee treat) at Kiehl's, L'Occitane and the northernmost outpost of Mecca.
Once you’re finished at Westfield, head across the road to 15+ stores at Albany Mega Centre. True to its name, you’ll find megastore branches of leading nationwide brands including Cotton On, Noel Leaming, Rebel Sport, North Beach and The Baby Factory. Fitted with the holy grail of homewares – Briscoes, Adairs and Farmers Home – you'll be well into homewares heaven.
