the general

Welcome to The General Store online. Here you will find a unique range of cosmopolitan, funky & retro design to gift and indulge.

Stocking international brands and proudly New Zealand design, we started our store in a quirky little lane in Lichfield Street and later moved to the hustle and bustle of Hereford Street. Our Christchurch store was closed in February 2011 due to the earthquake that shut down the CBD. We are delighted to be continuing to bring you all those cool things online.

In our check out section you have the option to have your purchase gift wrapped and sent direct to the lucky recipient. We’ll include a gift tag or you can choose a card, just tell us what you’d like on the message. How easy is that!

We are passionate about gifts and presenting the perfect one for any occasion. If you’re looking for something in particular your email ( or
phone (03 365 9950) enquiries are always welcome.

Treat yourself today!
