About Us


Hello, I’m Wendy Gooch and together with my husband Geoff, the co-owner of Sassys.

Sassys is a boutique women’s fashion group that has been part of the fabric of the local community since the early 1990s.
Entirely locally owned and operated, Sassys is committed to providing the finest quality and best value fashion possible for our discerning customers, and is passionate about offering tasteful and exceptional labels that stand the test of time.

Geoff and I have been at the helm of Sassys since 2003 and are proud to have built a loyal following in both Christchurch and Nelson.
With the growth of globalisation adversely impacting local retailers, we are steadfast in our quest to continue to offer quality and excellence to our customers with the best advice and personalised service.

Sassys can be found in Merivale and Barrington Malls, and in Richmond Mall, Nelson where you can be sure of knowledgeable and friendly service from our girls who know and understand fashion and can empathise with our customers’ individual needs and desires.

We are sure you will enjoy the experience we offer, and we look forward to seeing you soon at Sassys.
Thank you for supporting us.

Wendy & Geoff.
