Marbecks concept store

From the Resene Total Colour Awards gallery — The Plaza, Palmerston North

The look is rustic chic and you can see a whimsical adaptation of the Marbecks colours used.

Store book shelves

Marbecks Palmerston North is the second concept store to open over the last six months. The new Marbecks brand is a derivative of the CD + DVD stores, who decided to take the Marbecks name, in an ‘adapt or die’ current climate.

We opened a new concept store in Dunedin last year and Palmerston North is our first North Island store. The stores include books, music, DVDs and a café. The look is rustic chic and you can see a whimsical adaptation of the Marbecks colours used. The whole store is meant to be an experience, for the mind, ears, eyes and mouth, and something for all ages. The children’s mural wall adds a bright playful feel to the area.
