Aotea Square, Auckland, NewZealand
OPENED: ???, PHOTO: 1/15/2011

This store might be the wickedest in Auckland, if not all of New Zealand. Besides its utterly funky interior design, which is circular, with pie-shaped tables pointing in towards the center, the stores coolest feature is a mirrored ceiling about two stories high. Futuristic is how I would describe it, but really the store defies description--you just have to see it

Botany Town Centre - Ground Floor, Auckland, NewZealand
OPENED: ???, PHOTO: 1/17/2011

This store display old history photos of the area (or Auckland, or NZ in general--they are not labeled). This is not unusual, but I would have expected to see these photos at a store in a more central and historic part of the city, not out in the "burbs" (if that even makes sense for Auckland).
