Five Mile has firmly established itself, after operating for six years, as the locals’ choice and the most comprehensive shopping centre for visitors from Wanaka, and Cromwell as well as other parts of Central Otago and Southland.
The centre is known for its quality retail outlets and operators say continuing to support local is vital for the locally owned and operated businesses. There is no need to shop anywhere else for everything from new season’s sports or winter gear to those special touches for the home, the most up-to-date technology, stunning gifts and even the latest health supplements.
A wide range of retail options are available for the whole family at good price points across the board and to make shopping a hassle-free experience the community hub offers plenty of easy parking, with some underground.
As well as ground floor retail there are a host of successful businesses populating the upper office floors, including lawyers, accountants, physios, a popular childcare centre and a wide range of professional service businesses.
Food glorious food
The range of cafés, bars and restaurants continues to expand at Five Mile. The Crown pub is the latest addition to the hospitality family and offers a warm and appealing autumn environment with fires burning and hearty food options. There are easy takeout outlets for evenings providing the whole family with warm and nourishing food. Grab a coffee on a frosty morning and for those feeling peckish there is everything on offer from cheese rolls to burgers, fries, pizza, sushi, Indian dishes or a healthy snack or juice.
