The Corner Store is a two-storey building at 314 Cashel Street which on the upper storey houses 15 artist studios and on the ground floor consists of hole-in-the-wall coffee and exhibition/event space. Partnering with Smokey T’s BBQ, the Sailor's Son coffee roasters, and Ghost Brewing Co. to provide food and refreshments, The Corner Store will extend their hospitality offering for gallery opening evenings, coffee from 8am Monday to Friday, corporate events, lunch and dinner service from Thursday to Saturday and hosting workshops by social enterprises and not-for-profit organisations doing great things in Christchurch.
The Corner Store is located on the edge of the city, and brings together all types of creators in an open and collaborative space, to create, make and share. Our aim is to build a friendly, safe environment for people to enjoy art, culture and food. The service providers are all local with a genuine interest in investing their brands into making Christchurch the sort of city that people love to live in and get involved with.
