Retailers return to Christchurch CBD
Paul Keane

Last week’s opening of a new fashion zone in central Christchurch, including Glassons, Hallenstein Brothers and a Mecca ‘Maxima’, effectively signalled the return of retail activity to the heart of Christchurch city.  It is an indication to the people of Christchurch and New Zealand that the resolve of property owners and retailers to re-establish in the city centre is still strong.

Tiffany's lands in Takutai Square
Paul Keane

Some 15 years ago I was in the USA on business with a colleague when he decided to purchase an engagement ring for his partner. He spent some time making the selection (with some assistance from me) and headed home happily with the Tiffany's engagement ring secured in its special box. The engagement, by the way, was secured, and I assume at some point in the future the couple will marry!

Guy Fawkes, gambling and goodbye to cash
Paul Keane

Are we now in a cashless society? The Melbourne Cup was last Tuesday, the biggest betting day of the year. For years RCG has held the traditional office sweep. I assumed this year would be no exception. Why wouldn’t we all take part in this fun event? 

It was a simple exercise even for the uninitiated; just pay $2 and you receive a horse. More interest will increase the purse for distribution amongst the winner and other place getters.

Judging by the number of offers that are oversubscribed, it is also apparent that investors at this level are plentiful.
