"We want to provide the best customer experience for Kiwis – wherever they are in the country. The new store will offer more choice and a unique shopping experience,” says Tim.

The Invercargill central store will create 25 new jobs for the city to meet the expected demand in the growing mall.

Tony Keay, Store Manager of JB Hi-Fi Invercargill, says that after months of intensive training, local employees have become part of the JB Hi-Fi family.

“We're not just opening a store; we're becoming a part of Invercargill's story, and we look forward to welcoming customers through our doors.”

He adds that local shoppers can expect a great range of technology at awesome prices.
