WHERE TO SHOP
INDEPENDENT AND INSPIRING SHOPS
The Delights of Shopping Local
Ashburton is brimming with an eclectic mix of independent shops catering to all tastes and occasions: antique shops crammed with collectables, curios and period pieces; jewellers and gift shops offering unique gifts for family and friends or something special for that special someone; delicatessens & wine shops; art galleries and comic shops; clothing, beauty and lifestyle stores, interspersed with cafe’s, restaurants, pubs and bars, all vying for your attention. Each brings something unique to the high-street, and they do it with a passion and a genuine care for their customers that you won’t find in a city-centre chain.
Our food shops and restaurants are passionate about looking after our community and the environment. In some places even the chairs you sit on, the tables you eat at, the plates and the mugs are made by local artisans - supporting and sustaining our community!
The unique experience this provides is likely to be unforgettable!
