Dick Smith shuts doors

Dick Smith store shuts

Dick Smith Electronics in Fitzherbert Ave - found in The Plaza car park - is shutting down. The 348-square-metre retail space is now up for lease.

Closed doors a surprise

The saga of the ''mystery restaurants'' underneath @ The Hub in Rangitikei St in Palmerston North has taken yet another twist.

While Piazza is still empty after more than a year, neighbours Chili opened two months ago. But a sign has now gone up saying the restaurant will be shut for two weeks.
