This upmarket retail development on the northern fringe of Tauranga has expanded rapidly in recent years and is now the largest outdoor shopping centre in the Western Bay of Plenty.
It takes about 10 minutes to drive to Bethlehem Town Centre from Tauranga’s CBD, or you can catch a Bay Hopper bus which will deliver you right outside the door on Bethlehem Rd.
There’s over 40 quality stores here offering everything from boutique fashion and footwear, to health and beauty, home and living, and everyday service providers. A Countdown supermarket can be found at one end, while leading discount giant Kmart will open a large new store on the opposite side of the town centre in early 2016.
With over 20,000sq m of retail space, there’s plenty of shopping for you to indulge in. Choose a new outfit from one of the boutique fashion stores which stock New Zealand’s leading designers and international brands.
Shop for beautiful homewares and furniture or treat yourself to a new haircut or beauty treatment. If you’re looking for a special gift for either a child or adult, there’s lots of unique ideas here that you won’t find anywhere else.
Bethlehem Town Centre also has several great cafes and restaurants where you can enjoy a beverage and a bite, plus numerous takeaway outlets if you want to grab something to eat while you’re on the go.
Most of Bethlehem’s stores are locally-owned and operated. You’ll be greeted with a warm smile and enjoy this centre’s relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.
Bethlehem Town Centre is beautifully laid out with cobblestones, tree-lined streets and attractive stone facades on many buildings. There’s a children’s playground to help your little ones burn off some energy and public toilets plus a parents’ room opposite Wild South.
This shopping destination is open seven days a week from 9am – 5:30pm Monday – Saturday, and 10am – 4pm on Sundays. Countdown and Kmart are open for extended hours beyond this.
You’ll also find plenty of free parking right around Bethlehem Town Centre, including disabled parking and loading bays.
