New Zealand’s largest shopping centre Westfield Newmarket is set to open on August 29. Here’s everything you need to know about the central Auckland mall.

With more than 200 stores sprawled across two three-storey buildings connected by a “sky bridge”, Westfield Newmarket in central Auckland has broken several retail records.

The mall has been closed for two years to undergo a $790 million face lift.

It will open in four stages with the first 40 of its 230 shops – including Farmers, Chemist Warehouse and Australian furniture brand Coco Republic’s first New Zealand store – opening their doors at 9am on Thursday.
