Post-quake Christchurch too tough for some businesses

From Morning Report, 6:15 am on 1 August 2018

Some central Christchurch business owners are having to shut their doors due to tough economic conditions. Retail spending within the four avenues is only 80 percent of what it was and the number of people residing in the area is only two-thirds of pre-quake levels. Canterbury Cheesemongers co-owner, Sarah Aspinwall, is only one business owner who has had to make one of the hardest business decisions imaginable. She spoke to RNZ reporter Logan Church as she packed up her central city shop for good.
