All the places I've suggested also have supermarkets and other shops, cafe's, restaurants, GP's, pharmacy's etc close by and of course Tauranga isn't ever far away although not a lot of people shop there nowadays as there isn't much in the centre and you currently have to pay for parking. The council are revamping the centre a bit at the moment but it'll have to be good to make people return as we now have Tauranga Crossings in Tauriko and Bayfair Shopping Centre which are both pretty awesome out of the CBD shopping areas.
