Summer is looking bright for Napier CBD businesses

By   Pip   -  August 29 / 2023

With summer just around the corner, Napier is gearing up for an epic summer with an influx of visitors, offering up a great opportunity for new businesses. 

With a full event calendar including concerts, festivals and a bumper cruise ship season set to welcome over 130,000 cruise ship passengers, there’ll be a surge of potential customers to our streets providing a prime opportunity for new businesses to establish themselves and flourish.

If you’ve been thinking about opening up shop in Napier’s CBD, now’s the perfect time. Whether you’ve dreamed of a cosy café, trendy boutique, or cutting-edge tech startup, Napier CBD is a prime location, with available retail spaces waiting to be filled by passionate business owners. 

Pip Thompson, the General Manager of Napier City Business Inc, says there’s no denying that the past few years have posed significant challenges for local businesses, but the resilience and optimism of our community is truly admirable. 

“The great news is that there’s only one way to go, and that’s up. When walking the streets, it’s fabulous to see leased signs on shop front windows – the appetite is there. Additionally there is large scale investment being injected into inner city buildings, bringing to the CBD medium to large organisations which all helps with the vibrancy especially to the Monday to Friday trade. Napier City is well known as a weekend getaway destination however weekend trade is not enough to keep businesses profitable year round.”
