A visit to Paihia is incomplete if you have only seen the waterfront and the main street. Hidden in plain sight is a veritable treasure trove of retail shopping and services.
Be sure to explore Selwyn Mall just one block back from the ocean, next to the fire station on Selwyn Road. You’ll discover local retailers, real salt-of-the-earth Kiwis, specialising in local art, craft, and authentic Kiwiana. Fashion, antiques, and more are all located opposite fabulous food, and all tucked carefully away from the hustle and bustle.
Thirty Nine on Williams Road is the hub of local activity. It’s the place to go for the Post Office, courier deliveries, Kiwibank, books, stationary, gifts, internet, and copy services. A bakery and Italian restaurant are long-time local favourites. They’re right next door to the locally owned Four Square grocery store and the Indian Fusion restaurant. The largest space available for long term lease in central Paihia is upstairs at Thirty Nine, currently providing a venue for Pilates classes thrice weekly, as well as intermittent community meetings, art classes, exhibitions, and workshops.
