What does Covid-19 NZ Alert Level 1 mean for shopping at Relics?
At midnight on Tue 9 June, New Zealand moves to Level 1 -- HOORAY !! This means our store and NZ life reverts pretty much back to normal. We will still have sanitizer available in store if you want to use it, and the govt app QR code will remain up so that you can scan and diary your movements.

What does that mean for shopping at Relics?
Info for picking up
Dave + Irene will be at the store with the door open, and there’ll be a counter across the front door.
If there are other people already waiting when you arrive, just line up and keep good physical distance from each other.
Otherwise, we’ll see you, and we’ll chat from 2m and sort you out without contact across the temporary counter!
Dave likes to call it our physical distancing barrier - sorry no hugs this time round — have to wait a bit longer for those 😊
I don't like to use websites, is there any other way I can order/purchase?
Yes! You can still order music + fun relics stuff from us!
I live internationally - not in NZ, can you still ship to me?
Yes! Under NZ's Covid-19 Alert level 3, our post offices are open for international shipping.
Please note that the lockdown restrictions in your own country may affect estimated delivery times and there may be delays. However, If New Zealand is under alert levels 3, 2 or 1 we can ship your goods as per normal.
Any other queries, please don't hesitate to call or email us.
Be well, stay safe + hope you're feeling positive!
Dave + Irene xx

Today, New Zealand enters Covid-19 Alert Level 4
During lockdown - Alert Level 4 - we won't be able to access our stock, and honestly, we feel it's in all of our best interests to do our best to minimize contact - even with our courier who we love (thanks Scott!). So if you want to order online, we'll deliver your goods as soon as we have access again -- same goes with pickups -- thanks for all the love and for supporting us + our music community to date 😄
We will respond to all emails as we can. Be well, be safe and enjoy the chill !

Dear RELICS customers,
WOW -- what crazy times ?!!
Relics has been open 7 days a week for the last 7 years -- but we all have to adapt to the new normal. We will endeavour to be as flexible as we can be -- and no doubt a little creative to help you get the music products you like, when you like. We -- Dave and Irene -- have a bit to think through yet, but currently you have some options:
ALL STOCK is listed on our website
COVID-19 is a serious disease that is impacting all of us but will be especially worrying for many in our community. The efforts being made are to help us SLOW DOWN community spread in New Zealand -- to help medical staff treat the sick that need help, and to help our country function as normal as possible under these new circumstances.
Wondering if we're open?
We will keep updating you here in RELICS NEWS and on our Instagram and Facebook social media pages -- in the meantime -- please be safe, don't take risks, stay home if you're immunocompromised or unwell -- and stay connected to each other !!
Dave, Irene + the Relics Team xxx
