All the shops are bright color although the location cycled by all destroyed buildings. It is still poluar and very energetic look.

If in Christchurch, you should really plan to have an afternoon at the Re:Start mall. Since a number of the buildings in this pedestrian mall (along with the rest of the city) were destroyed shops now occupy brightly coloured containers and fill the now empty lots where buildings once stood. While you are in the midst of a destruction zone it feels like Cashel street is the start of something exciting and new for Christchurch. On a sunny day in the weekend there are often buskers and street performers creating a fun and light-hearted atmosphere. The shopping in the mall is pretty high end with a lot of the stores being boutiques - if you're not into that it's still fun to have a look around. Food caravans and two cafes service the small area - you must stop and have the Souvlaki! A Christchurch favourite!

Good on the foresight and encouragement of the Ballantyne family - leading the charge to revitalise our city centre.
Lets hope the council can get the area around it right

The Restart Mall is worth the time to walk around and enjoy. It not only offers some smart shopping but the cafes are quite good too. The old heart of the city and near The Strip, Cashel Street is where inner city shopping is reemerging as the city of Christchurch recovers from the earthquakes of 2010-11.

It is amazing how this small area is so full of life. Shows the humour of the people of Christchurch that they an get moving after such dreadful earthquakes and start the reopening of their city. We loved Johnson's Grocery shop in the Hub.
