Smith & Caughey's
Auckland's oldest department store was started in 1880 as a drapery and hat shop by a Miss Caughey, who quickly expanded on her success with her brother and her husband (Mr. Smith). The quality of their goods and service has made this a city institution, especially beloved in December for their festive holiday windows and Santa Wonderland. The Queen Street shop is an Art Deco landmark, with a smaller shop in another heritage building in Newmarket.
