Let's Get Festive - Centre City

Let’s Get Festive

Christmas is a very special time of the year for us at Centre City.

The energy and excitement from our shoppers, the vibrant colors of our Christmas Tree, the twinkling lights above the food court, our Merry Community Christmas decorations made by children from our community, and the anticipation of a very special guest arriving in December all create a festive atmosphere that is hard to resist.

This year, we invite you to join us in getting festive! Over the next month, you can catch up on all things Christmas here and in-store at Centre City.

With over 50 specialty stores and endless gift options to choose from, Centre City is your one-stop shop for all your Christmas shopping needs.

This year, we’re making the experience even more enjoyable with extended trading hours, complimentary gift wrapping, and the opportunity to take photos with Santa.

So, LET’S GET FESTIVE and into the spirit of the season together!

Give the Gift of Choice!

The perfect gift does exist! 

This year, give the gift of choice to your family, friends, and everyone else on your gift list! Our gift cards can be used in nearly every one of our Centre City stores and come with a three-year expiration period.

Centre City Gift Cards are available from the Management Office or our website – Centre City Gift Cards .

Santa is coming to Centre City.

We can’t wait to welcome Santa back to Centre City this Christmas! We’ve invited Santa to stay a few extra days in sunny Taranaki and make the most of his summer beach bach!

Santa’s Bach opens on Thursday, 7 December. You’ll be able to capture a magical photo with Santa. 

We’ll also again offer Paw-Traits and Sensitive Santa sessions this year. See Santa’s Bach Photography Times HERE 


Extended Christmas Trading

We’ve extended our opening hours at Centre City in the lead-up to Christmas.

With more time to shop later in the evening, there is plenty of time to plan your visit and make sure you tick everything off your Christmas shopping list. See our Christmas Trading Hours here.

Gift Wrapping Charity Giving

Wrap up the festive vibes with our complimentary gift-wrapping services, exclusively for Centre City shoppers.

Each year, a local community group is selected to manage the gift-wrapping station, receiving all proceeds donated from customers. Donations are not mandatory.

The Taranaki Health Foundation is our charity for 2023. Find out more HERE.
