#1855 Good as Gold has moved down the road into a three level treehouse

Photos: supplied

Wellington institution Good as Gold has officially closed its doors for the last time at its original Victoria Street location, and opened its doors for the first time at its brand spanking new space – just five doors down the road. Now located on the corner of Manners and Victoria Streets, the new Good as Gold store is bigger – and therefore better – than ever before: the entire shop was designed to resemble a three storey treehouse; macrocarpa was used throughout (just like the fence posts on a Kiwi farm); the changing rooms look like Scandinavian saunas; and some of the shelving units are attached to ladders that I reckon you could climb up if nobody was looking. Fun for the whole family! Speaking of which, the new space was designed by proprietor Ruben Bryant in collaboration with his dad, architect Ken Bryant. If you're in Wellington, get in there immediately. If you're not, you can always browse the goods online.

What a stunning place, it's so lovely to see a more rustic interior for a store.

I checked the new store out at the wkend and may I say, it was amaaaazing! Fabulous space and great stock, but more importantly, the two very styley gentlemen working there were polite and attentive! Which is more I can say for the sale store at the old shop, where I was totally ignored...uncool.
