Weekends finally mean we can get out and explore our shops again. Our new found freedom post lockdown has seen surges of shoppers hitting the streets. Coffee shops, restaurants and shop owners are starting to get on their feet again, however it's still going to be a long uphill climb to become stable.
Sadly this new surge in spending isn't enough to help save those that were struggling. At Duffle&Co we've sadly seen some of our favourite retail shops close their doors forever after lockdown. Family run businesses that have not only stocked Duffle&Co on their stylish shelves for a number of years, but also many other New Zealand brands they supported and believed in. Saying goodbye is hard, and we're grateful to have worked alongside these stores as we grew our businesses together.
However, there are many of our retailers that are still going strong! From beautiful boutiques to gift shops galore, you can find Duffle&Co stocked across New Zealand in over 40 stores.
Wherever your weekend adventures take you, why not take a look at our list of stockists and pay them a visit when you explore. There's never been a better time to support local New Zealand businesses. Every store visit, every follow on social media and every experience review helps to keep them strong.
Enjoy your new found freedom, and remember to shop and support local!
