Rotorua Mall - Large national chain stores plus smaller, owner-operated retail businesses and a food court all hang out at the Mall, also known as Rotorua Central Mall.
It sure is a strange place, all spread out with the shops covering a wide area. Basically, another town center has been built right next to the old one.
Located in the heart of the Rotorua Central Mall is the undercover food court with the likes of:
Around the food court you will find:

Western Border of the Block
In a westerly direction you are now looking at the buildings on the perimeter of the whole block. They are the big department stores such as:
Farmers - Furniture, Manchester, clothing (all ages), skincare, appliances etc
Uncle Bills - Wholesale club out to beat retail prices with all sorts of things from laundry items to clothing and everything in between.
Noel Leeming - Appliances, computer, phone, TV ware etc .
No.1 Shoes - this is the big store for the shoes
Harvey Norman - Furniture, manchester, appliances, computer, phone, TV ware etc .
If you don't know it, getting around in the car-park is a mission. It defies logic the way it's been built as there are dead-ends or
through-roads that are hard to see from a distance. You'll see what I
mean if you visit here with a car. Keep your wits about you.
Bus stops have been added too which contributes to the madness at times.
There are four entrances to the block that houses the Rotorua Mall area. They are located on Amohau St, Fenton St, and two on Victoria St. The Amohau St entrance is a nightmare as cars get banked up because of shocking planning. It's a pet peeve for a lot of us here. Avoid it like the plague.
Looking at the block on the map you will also find additional businesses that can mostly be accessed from within the block:
