We're planning to road trip the south island, and stay at B&Bs. I would like to take a small soft-sided cooler so that we could pack some ice, food and drinks for our drives and day trips/hikes.
We will be arriving Christchurch on a Saturday evening, and will overnight there the first night. We would like to get some shopping done on Sunday, then head toward our next destination (not sure of the itinerary yet).
Can you recommend a grocery store where we could pick up snacks, drinks, and sandwich fixings?
Also, can you recommend a store where we can buy towels and pillows? I'd like to have some beach towels with us, and I'll need an extra pillow for the driving, but I don't want to pack them.
Preferably, these stores would be near each other, as we'd like to limit our city driving.
What time do the stores open on Sunday?
Thanks so much!
