How do contain a shop in a container. Fairly easily it seems. Some neat little shops set up in dozens of shipping containers in the Rebuild city in Cashell Street. But still not many people around, so hope the businesses survive. The Earthquake Museum is located here also, and that is a must see.

“Funky town”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

The re-start mall is much more than a shopping experience. It shows the resilience of the locals in overcoming the devastation of the earthquakes. It's bright and positive and is well worth a visit

“Restart mall great”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Love what they have done with the restart mall, looks great and great shops and cafes. Worth a visit. Sad about all the buildings around that are gone, quite a surreal feeling.

“Amazing”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

WOW !!! I loved the unusual container shops. As a past resident of Christchurch I was extremely upset by the extensive damage done by the earthquakes. Congratulations to whoever thought of utilising the humble container as a shop. They have made this an interesting place to explore.
