The historic town of Arrowtown is a popular holiday destination throughout the year and WoolPress Arrowtown is one of the most well known and well frequented stores on Arrowtown’s main street, Buckingham Street. Established in 1991 by Arrowtown locals, Delvine Wallace and Bruce Gibbs, WoolPress Arrowtown has always been a hot shopping destination for holiday-makers as well as the locals. The first retail store in the world to stock two of New Zealand’s top brands; Icebreaker and Earth Sea Sky, WoolPress Arrowtown has always led the way in the Arrowtown tourism retail sector. Whilst the store has evolved over the past 25 years with the brands it stocks, one thing has always remained the same and that is the amazing service, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff and the excellent overall shopping experience that those who have visited have come to expect from WoolPress Arrowtown. Please visit our other store, Te Huia. Established in 2012 to showcase New Zealand-Designed and New Zealand-Made products, Te Huia stocks gorgeous knitwear from Untouched World, Merinomink™, high-quality outerwear from Canada Goose®, beauty products, and the largest range of Paula Ryan in the Wakatipu.
