A new Marbecks store will be opening in The Plaza, Palmerston North mid June.
The new Marbecks Palmerston North will build upon the success of our first foray into book retailing in Wall Street Dunedin.
The Palmerston North store will occupy a space right on the Square, the site was previously a Starbucks & a pharmacy. Once again our designers have developed a unique and bold design which will be unlike any offering currently in Palmerston North, the site will have its own unique identity whilst retaining the boutique feeling of Wall Street.
