Internationally renowned jeweller Tiffany & Co announced plans today to open its first company-operated store in New Zealand at Britomart.
The 430m² store will occupy the entire ground floor of Australis House at 36-38 Customs St East and is expected to open in late 2016. Australis House, built in 1904, is Historic Places Trust-registered and the interior is being restored.
Tiffany Oceania managing director Glen Schlehuber said the company had been looking to establish a New Zealand presence for some time.
