Nestled in the heart of Sumner and somewhat now an institution, The Ivy gift and homewares store has moved into its sixth year of business. While favourite brands and labels remain, fresh products are constantly being sourced with an ongoing emphasis on sustainability and ethical production.
Owner Karen Aitken, who has a background in food and nutrition, has recently added a side-branch to her business – The Ivy Kitchen.
Karen’s love of good food has led to the establishment of this catering branch of The Ivy, which includes the creation of delicious morsels for all occasions, locally and within Christchurch.
Thanks to the ongoing support of locals and regular customers from all over Christchurch, ‘The Ivy’ continues to grow and looks forward to exciting new product lines and twists in the future.
Find The Ivy at 55 Nayland Street, Sumner, open Monday to Friday 10am to 5pm and weekends from 11am to 4pm. Phone 03 326 6481 or find them on Facebook and Instagram.
