Travel retailer DFS Group is to launch a T Galleria store in the heart of Queenstown, New Zealand next year.
Located at the popular retail space called O’Connells, T Galleria Queenstown will span 1800sqm across two floors, featuring an assortment of luxury brands ranging from fashion and accessories, beauty, watches and jewellery along with wines and spirits. The store will also stock a high proportion of locally made products.
“[T Galleria] fits perfectly with our vision for the new O’Connells as a blend of quality shopping with an artisan, locally focused food and beverage offering,” said Geoff McDonald, CEO at Skyline Enterprises.
The new T Galleria New Zealand store will be designed in the style of DFS’s new concept ‘Resort Galleria’. According to the company, Resort Galleria will offer an open and airy design with “an informal yet elegant” feel, created from natural and sustainable locally sourced materials.
“O’Connells has long been a meeting and social space for locals and visitors and having the T Galleria store as part of the redeveloped O’Connells not only continues this tradition but is a strong endorsement of the revitalisation of downtown Queenstown,” McDonald added.
T Galleria Queenstown will be the DFS Group’s third location in New Zealand after the Custom House heritage building in downtown Auckland and at Auckland Airport.
