In Gisborne, you need sunnies. And the people at Steberson are extremely lovely and so very helpful. They know their stuff - this is evidenced by the amount of awards they have on their walls! The women that work there topped their classes at Optician school for both Aussie and NZ, and the guy that owns it is one of the tutors!!
In Gisborne you need sunnies, so if you haven't got any, or yours break or the screws come loose these are the people to go to. They're so friendly and helpful.
Okay okay, I know the people who own it! So if you go in say Amy Brown sent you there.
Gisborne's shopping centre is basically confined to the main street (Gladstone Road).
The shops are generally moderately priced goods with the main emphasis on casual clothing.
There are plenty of cafes and coffee houses providing breakfast / lunch etc with quite a few offering outdoor dining options.
The overall area is attractive with plantings of palms adding a nice touch.
The main feature is the Town Clock which looms large in the middle of town.
