I've added a computer shop (with branch on campus and in queen st) and 2
electronic shops to the shops + supplies page with google+ pages for them
so you can find where they are
Unless someone beats me to it, I'll eventually add the links to the Dick
Smith electronic shops, 3 stores are within walking distance of the venue.
Dick Smith at 21 Queen st, 26 Wyndham St and 442 Karangahape rd
Unfortunately the point for their K'Rd (what locals call Karangahape Rd)
store on their map is wrong.
