Thanks to all the rocking and rolling that went on in Christchurch over the past year a large part of our central shopping precinct was annihilated. In a concerted effort by the Christchurch Business Association and others, a bright new shopping precinct, called Restart, has popped up in Cashel Mall to excite and rejuvenate the city centre. One of our beloved stores Ballantynes , has re-opened as a leading light for Restart and judging by the response of locals this venture is very welcome.
If you would like to reminisce on what we have lost you can check out the library collection of Heritage Images . Have a good fossick around the Heritage Pages or read about some great Christchurch characters . If this gets your heart pumping with emotion perhaps you need to take a look at some great places around Canterbury to take a holiday.
And why not take a nice rest from all the strain of shopping at Restart with a visit to Christchurch City Libraries’ own restart in the city – Central South City Library. It’s a great little library. Either way you are on to a winner!
