Sephora announce a double-decker shopping bus will tour five NZ cities before Auckland store opening

Headlines 05/06/2019

Beauty retail powerhouse Sephora has teased more details about its much anticipated Auckland opening, confirming today that it will open its doors early next month.

The global retailer also has a treat for Kiwi beauty fans around the country who can't make it to Auckland for the grand opening - an interactive touring Beauty Bus, set to travel to five towns across the country before stopping at the grand opening.

These cities are yet to be announced.

New Zealanders can vote to bring the bus to their town from Thursday, with the Beauty Bus arriving at its first destination on July 6.

While no official date for the opening of the Auckland store has been confirmed, this means it will probably be in the second week of July.

Brands on-board the Beauty Bus will include, Fenty Beauty by Rihanna, tarte, and Sephora Collection.

Last month Sephora confirmed the location of the country's first "bricks and mortar" offering would be on Queen Street in Auckland's CBD.

Before the opening, Kiwi beauty junkies have only been able to get their fix from the store's New Zealand online shopping site, which launched in November 2015.
