What do you think of the new circles painted on Dunedin's main drag?

Nicole Reporter from Dunedin News

The sudden appearance of colourful circles along Dunedin's main shopping streets has left some seeing red.

About 450 circles were painted along George and Princes streets from Sunday night as part of a range of temporary measures approved by the Dunedin City Council in response to Covid-19.

The measures include lowering the speed limit from 30kmh to 10kmh, adding free parking, letting shops expand onto footpaths, and installing temporary speed humps and circles to remind road users of shared spaces.

Kmart leaving Dunedin's 'quake-prone' Meridian Mall after 23 years

Nicole Reporter from Dunedin News

Dunedin’s popular Kmart store in the Meridian Mall is set to leave the site it has called home for the past 23 years.

Meridian Mall was found to have a seismic performance of less than 34 per cent of the new building standard, and Kmart's lease expires in September. Kmart was now in the process of finding a new location, a spokeswoman said.

The decision comes after The Warehouse announced it would be closing nine stores across the country, including its Dunedin central store. The Dunedin H&J Smith department store was also closing its doors.
