This brand new Mecca store is offering beauty services 

Mecca has announced the opening of its biggest New Zealand store.

The two-level, 491 square metre destination at Auckland’s Sylvia Park mall, has just opened with an extensive offering of the beauty emporium’s much-loved global beauty brands like NARS, Hourglass, Glow Recipe, Urban Decay and Laura Mercier. 

Extending its offering beyond just retailing beauty products, the store will include a number of more experiential offerings to give shoppers a chance to try products, undergo a range of new services and receive more detailed education from its staff. 

Following an approach already established in Mecca’s flagship Sydney CBD store, the Sylvia Park store includes four dedicated beauty service zones featuring over 20 different services across skin treatments, fragrance consultations, makeup applications and Mecca’s first exclusive brow zone in New Zealand. 

The brow zone includes services for brow lamination, brow tinting, and brow sculpting, a combination of wax, tweeze and tint. 

Customers can also book in for a number of in-store facials. The signature Mecca Facial, which costs $120 but is redeemable on products, is equal parts educational and relaxing. You lay back in a reclining chair while a staff member carries out a treatment customised to your skin as well as refining a skincare routine to follow. 

One of three Express Facials can be carried out sitting in a chair and offers a quick pick-me-up for skin using exfoliation, microcurrent or LED light treatment and a leave-on mask treatment. They are $60 redeemable on product. 

If you’re heading to an event it could be useful to book to have your makeup done in either a natural look, $120 redeemable on product, or a more glam look that costs $150, but is redeemable on product.

The Sylvia Park store also features a Mecca Perfumeria, home to the most sought-after fragrance brands including Byredo, diptyque, Frederic Malle and Maison Francis Kurkdjian as well as offering fragrance consultations for one person, a couple or even a wedding fragrance consultation so you can scent your big day your way. 

 

Saint Laurent, Balenciaga and Burberry among host of designer brands opening in Newmarket

New Zealand’s luxury fashion options are about to be significantly boosted with the arrival of a number of sought-after global designer brands.

The line-up of international retailers soon to open within Westfield Newmarket’s recently redeveloped shopping mall includes a number of names that have never had a significant retail presence in the country.

Moncler, Saint Laurent, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, Burberry,  Jimmy Choo and Michael Kors will each open their first New Zealand boutiques within the luxury precinct, along with Louis Vuitton and locally-owned Partridge Jewelers.

Further luxury brands also opening in the space will be announced in the coming months.

Located at street level of the mall that sits over two large blocks on Broadway in Newmarket, the majority of the retailers are due to open before Christmas. The new openings join British luxury accessories label Mulberry and Auckland’s first David Jones, which opened within the precinct in December 2020.

Scentre Group Director of Leasing and Retail Solutions and Development NZ, John Papagiannis said the introduction of these brands represents a significant milestone for luxury retail in New Zealand.

“We’re proud to be delivering this one-of-a-kind luxury retail experience, on a scale previously unseen in New Zealand.

“The introduction of these retailers represents the strength of the local customer and their desire for premium retail and brand experiences akin to the rest of the world.

“The new Westfield Newmarket luxury precinct will become a go-to destination for New Zealanders looking to connect and engage with some of the most sought-after luxury brands and we look
forward to celebrating the first of many grand openings with our customers and retail partners later this year.”
