Westfield Newmarket today announced nine luxury retailers set to join the centre later this year; solidifying the flagship as the ‘home of luxury’ for New Zealand.

Located at street level of the recently redeveloped Westfield Newmarket on Broadway, the luxury precinct will house a mix of new, first-to-New Zealand and first-to-portfolio retailers with a majority due to be open before Christmas.

The line-up of international retailers soon to join Westfield Newmarket, includes: Louis Vuitton, Moncler, Saint Laurent, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, Burberry, Jimmy Choo, Michael Kors and Partridge Jewellers, with further names to be announced.

Newmarket Business Association CEO Mark Knoff-Thomas commented: “The arrival of the best top tier luxury brands in the world is a celebration for the precinct, and of all the hard work done by Scentre Group. Newmarket is the epicentre of New Zealand retail and now this has reached even greater heights. We are delighted that during these times of restricted overseas travel, New Zealanders can have a truly international shopping experience, right here in Newmarket.”

Curated to cater to New Zealand’s growing appetite for elevated retail experiences, Scentre Group Director of Leasing and Retail Solutions and Development NZ, John Papagiannis said the introduction of these brands represents a significant milestone for luxury retails in New Zealand: “We’re proud to be delivering this one of-a-kind luxury retail experience, on a scale previously unseen in New Zealand.”

“The introduction of these retailers represents the strength of the local customer and their desire for premium retail and brand experiences akin to the rest of the world.”

“The new Westfield Newmarket luxury precinct will become a go-to destination for New Zealanders looking to connect and engage with some of the most sought-after luxury brands and we look forward to celebrating the first of many grand openings with our customers and retail partners later this year.”

The new retailers join Auckland’s first David Jones and British luxury retailer Mulberry, which opened within the precinct in December 2020.
