Anderson's has operated in Wanganui for over 30 years. We purchased this iconic local business 10 years ago when it was on the corner of Victoria Avenue and Ridgway Street. The initial store we purchased was a large menswear shop with small womenswear and uniform departments. After five years we had grown to the point where we had to open a second store with womenswear moving into 92 Victoria Avenue. We named this store ‘Noire’ and it has continued to grow since relocation. In 2018 we were forced to move out of 50 Victoria Ave due to maintenance and safety issues with the site. Uniforms moved to its own dedicated location at 184 Victoria Ave, while menswear moved to 65 Victoria Ave. Our two new stores have been trading at their respective new locations for over 3 years now and have consolidated and grown their operations well. Our 4th shop, The Sewing Centre opened in November 2019, specializing in sewing alterations, haberdashery, Janome sewing machines and second-hand school uniforms.
The addition of the 4th shop resulted in us launching the ‘Anderson's Group’ covering our 4-store operation. We look forward to serving you in whichever of our stores you happen to be visiting, or we hope you find what you’re looking for here on our website.
