    An upmarket fashion retail store, owned by designer Karen Walker, is closing after 10 years

    An upmarket fashion retail store, owned by designer Karen Walker, is closing after 10 years


    The Department Store, in Takapuna on Auckland's North Shore, is home to a handful of Kiwi brands, including Walker's own.

    She told the Herald the idea the idea of a bricks and mortar shop being a destination store is no longer as relevant as it was a decade ago.

    Walker says retail now belongs more on the internet.

    The Department Store's final day of trade is January 26.
