Wellington has won the right to be home to a shoebox-like store for a well-known shoe designer.

Auckland shoe designer Kathryn Wilson, who studied in Wellington, is bringing her "pop-up shop" - in the shape of a shoebox - to Wellington this week.

The shoebox will be set up in Post Office Square, after an online vote to see where the moveable store would go to next saw Wellington win after a tight race with Christchurch.

Ms Wilson announced the win on her Facebook page, saying the shop was en route to the capital, and would open here on Saturday.

The shop is 8 metres long, 4m wide and 3m high, complete with lid and will stay for six months.

Last week, council spokesman Richard MacLean said several potential locations had been considered and Post Office Square seemed the most appropriate, because it had enough space, was within the CBD, and no events would be hampered by its presence.

"There's a bit of room to move there."

More recently, the store was moved from Britomart to Wellesley St in central Auckland, surprising people in the new location.
