It was nice to head South to check on building progress of our new store.
I had the privilege of hosting some of New Zealand's top media over the course of a day and a half and showing them some of Canterburys best.
For many of them, it was their first visit back to Christchurch since the earthquake and what was clear to me, from their experiences, was how impressed they were with progress and the mindset and optimism of people.
There is a collective force of creative entrepreneurs and business people doing great stuff and Christchurch gets more and more interesting by the day. We are excited to become a part of this community in 2018.
If you are planning a trip away or thinking about your next holiday I urge you to consider Canterbury and all that it has to offer.
It's a dynamic region.
