Spending over the Easter period more than doubled compared to the same period of last year, although growth in the North Island outstripped the South Island.
Customer spending through the Paymark card system between Easter Thursday to Tuesday hit a total of $720m – a leap of 130% on the same period of last year when New Zealand was operating under Covid-19 alert level four restrictions.
Compared to 2019, however, spending rose only 5.1 %, with the North Island up 6.7% compared to 1.2% growth in the South Island.
