Christchurch's Re:Start container mall is set to celebrate its first anniversary with a weekend of special events to thank residents for their support.

The mall opened on October 29 last year to provide a temporary home for earthquake-displaced businesses and encourage shoppers to return to the central city.

The mall has won a range of plaudits, with the "colourful labyrinth" featuring prominently in an endorsement of Christchurch by travel guide Lonely Planet.

Re:Start director Paul Lonsdale said the mall operators and retailers were looking forward to the occasion.

"I think everybody's pretty excited," he said.

"Most people are just grateful to be back in business."
