Farmers opens at The Hub, Hornby24 September 2014

Hornby is fast becoming one of Christchurch's retail hot spots, with new premises opening their doors on a weekly basis and construction projects underway across the suburb. 

Wednesday 24 September marked the much-awaited opening of the new Farmers Department Store in The Hub. Work for Leighs began in March 2013 on what was a very restricted site bordering an operational shopping mall. This stage of the development also includes six speciality shops, located at the entrance to Farmers, which in itself is an 8,000m², two-level structure.

The entire project is due for completion by March 2016.
