Christchurch firms to sell wares at Wellington expo

7:35 am on 9 May 2011

About 80 Christchurch firms will be selling their wares at an expo in Wellington in July, including the high-end retailer, Ballantynes.

Hands Up Wellington was formed by a group of Wellington firms in March to sell stock for Christchurch firms whose premises are out of action following the earthquake.

Founder Rochelle Jackson of Kitchen Elements says the group will ask individual Wellington companies to sponsor a Christchurch store and will seek financial support from the public to bring the firms to Wellington.

The expo will be held over two days in early July.
