As Wairarapa's largest town, Masterton shopping includes all the big brand, big box shopping you'd expect. And a few others you might not, like Moore Wilsons.
Shop at The Warehouse, Mitre 10 Mega, Farmers, Moore Wilsons, Paper Plus, Noel Leeming, Newbolds, Briscoes and Warehouse Stationery, as well as most of the major banks and supermarkets.
Masterton also has a fantastic book shop in Masterton called Hedley's Booksellers - it's been around for over 100 years! David Hedley, the current owner, has helped put together books for the likes of Ringo Starr and as such specialises in the history of popular music alongside New Zealand history, biographies and books around the Wairarapa region. They also offer aworld wide book search service to track down that elusive title!
Kuripuni Village is worth the ten minutes walk from central Masterton for the boutique shopping, cafes and bars.
