"With the decline in physical music sales in NZ over the past few years and events like the Christchurch earthquake there seems to have been a lot of stores closing.
Please note we've excluded stores that only sell second hand titles and also souvinier or book stores that have a tiny selection of music. The stores listed are either solely music retailers or at least have a large selection of new music. Also we can't say if we're 100% accurate so if you know of any others that we've left out then please leave a comment and we'll add them to the list.
And we've also left out online retailers like... us."
