Story: Department stores and shopping malls

Manukau City mall

Manukau City mall

In the late 1970s, the Manukau City mall was built beside the civic administration block and other community services in the Manukau City centre. As in most malls, the shops face into the mall with no external windows. There is plenty of parking, a feature of all shopping malls.
