LynnMall

Auckland department stores Milne & Choyce and Farmers were co-owners of New Zealand’s first shopping mall, LynnMall, along with Woolworths. All three companies had anchor stores in the centre. The mall, which opened in 1963 in New Lynn, was the department stores’ attempt to reach suburban consumers. This photograph was taken in 1969.
