Westfield Riccarton, (also known by its former name Riccarton Mall), is a large retail complex located in the Christchurch, New Zealand suburb of Riccarton. First opened in 1965, it is Christchurch's oldest shopping mall.[3]

Riccarton Mall was extensively remodeled around 1994-1995 with most stores relocating to new premises within the mall, Farmers is one of the few stores to remain in its original location. The remodel introduced a food court into the mall and a new rooftop car park.

In 2003 Westfield began a NZD$90 million redevelopment of the shopping centre which was completed in 2005. A strong focus of the redevelopment was a leisure component, with the introduction of the six-screen Hoyts Cinema multiplex, which features the second largest projection screen in New Zealand. In addition to the cinema, a restaurant and cafe area was constructed at the Rotherham Street end of the mall.

On 28 May 2009, the mall opened phase one of a new $75m expansion.[2] The latest redevelopment included 40 new retailers and a new café court. An additional cinema screen was added to the existing Hoyts Multiplex. The first stage of development, a new four level car park building with space for 400 cars, was completed in January 2009. The expansion increased the size of the mall to approximately 54,000 sqm. It is now New Zealand's third largest mall by retail space.
