Shopping for campervan supplies in Christchurch

Hello again friends,

We will be picking up our campervan in Christchurch and I am looking for recommendations on where to shop for supplies. Is there a large super store where we can get both food and perhaps some coloring books, games, balls, etc for the children? Thank you!

Where are you staying on your first night? There are large shopping Malls at Riccarton ( about 10 min from the airport heading east, ie towards the city) and Northlands (again 10 min, heading N). These both have at least one supermarket (Countdown or Pak N Save etc) and The Warehouse, also book/stationery store like Paper Plus or Whitcoulls.

If you are heading South there is a Mall at Hornby.

I would drive down Memorial Ave (road that goes from city to airport) to the New World supermarket in the fendalton shopping centre. There is plenty of parking. Then come back down Memoriat towards the airport. "chuck a left" (in australian) or hang a left (in Kiwi) and head along Russley Road. Once you are through the road works you will vome to a set of lights with a large Caltex petro station on the left. You Take a right at the lights and head west towards Arthurs Pass
