The Plaza Shopping Centre is a shopping mall in the central area of Palmerston North, New Zealand owned by Kiwi Property.[1] It is the largest shopping mall in the Manawatu region.

Redevelopment was done in three stages. The first stage opened in March 2009 with a new food court, a multi-level carpark and 15 new specialty stores.[2] The second stage opened in September 2009 with an additional 10 specialty stores. The third stage opened March 2010 with the addition of 32 specialty stores, a two-storey 7,200 m2 (78,000 sq ft) Farmers department store and another multi-level carpark.
