K Mart: "Where to get cheap clothes when luggage is lost" Top 5 Page for this destination Christchurch Shopping Tip by Kakapo2

Christchurch Shopping: 42 reviews and 40 photos


Once friends of us from overseas arrived without most of their luggage. Lucky them that we could help out with most things as they did not get a lot of money from the airline to buy clothes and other essentials.

We went to K-Mart to get underwear and socks, and such things are incredibly cheap there, also t-shirts, sports gear, swimsuits and shoes, and the quality is not too bad. Just nothing is really flash or funky - but in such a case of lost luggage you do not care. And lucky them - their bags arrived two days later already. But they still have their K-Mart underwear ;-)

The K-Mart stores also sell all kinds of household and garden items, decoration (especially for Christmas), wool, sewing stuff, bicycles, appliances, toys, sweets, creams, toothbrushes - just nearly everything you can imagine, and most things are really cheap. Perhaps the products would not fulfill your highest expectations but for bridging some days without your personal belongings especially the clothes are perfectly fine.
