Luxury department store David Jones will close its Wellington store in June 2022, after months of uncertainty over its future. However, its Auckland outlet will keep its doors open.
The flagship store, which opened in Lambton Quay in the heart of the city’s Golden Mile in July 2016, is understood to have told its employees on Wednesday that the business will shut its doors.
The store is home to some of the world’s most prestigious fashion brands, including the likes of Alexander McQueen, Chanel, Christian Louboutin, Prada and Versace.
Very sad for the staff, and customers.
It will leave a huge retail space available. I’m not sure there will be many other retailers that could occupy it.
