About Hannahs

Robert Hannah never stood still. He arrived in NZ in 1868, armed only with a cobbler’s apprenticeship and a mind for adventure. Robert set up shop in Charlestown and, before long, his fledgling shoe business became a thriving enterprise.

Fast forward well over a century and Hannahs hasn’t stood still either.

From the roaring '20s to the stylish '60s, past the grungy noughties through to the eclectic fashions of today. Now boasting over 50 stores across the country, Hannahs is constantly changing. We’re constantly transforming; keeping our finger on the pulse of fashion-forward to bring you handpicked trends, premium quality and our continued commitment to value.
