City stores to merge

Noel Leeming is amalgamating its two Nelson stores in Trafalgar St into a new, purpose-renovated single store in Bridge St.

Spokeswoman Joanne Fullam said the move was part of the company's programme to review and modernise Noel Leeming stores nationwide.

It will set up shop in the building formerly occupied by H&J Smith and most recently, Postie Plus, which is now undergoing extensive renovations.

"We have made the strategic decision to amalgamate and move our two existing Trafalgar St stores in Nelson to a single site location on Bridge St. The new store at Bridge St will enable us to best meet customer expectations," she said.
