This website is owned and maintained by the Mairangi Bay Business Association. It is a directory of local businesses in Mairangi Bay Village and a community resource for residents and visitors to find information about the area. 

The first shop was a general store, built in 1906 by Mr Pond. Once the Harbour Bridge was built, the area began to develop and Mairangi Bay Village was the first Auckland area to open on Saturday mornings. As the number of businesses increased they recognised the need for some sort of business association. The Mairangi Bay Businessmens’ Association was formed and operated successfully for many years.

In 2008 the association applied to the Auckland Council to become a Business Improvement District (BID) and changed their name to the Mairangi Bay Business Association (MBBA). As a BID, member businesses pay yearly rates to the Association and this money is spent on projects that make the most of Mairangi Bay Village, as a shopping and business area, and as a community. The Association employs a dedicated Co-ordinator to develop new ideas, with a budget to do so.

The association sees the strengths of Mairangi Bay as being fashion and food and fun. There are many boutique stores, mainly owner operated, offering a wide range of goods and services. The Association is committed to keeping Mairangi Bay one of the North Shore’s premier villages and welcomes any ideas for improvement.  


In 2009 the association started its own magazine, Mairangi Bay Village News, and works closely with community arts, clubs, schools and services to publish local news, stories and events, community news and events and a directory of all local businesses.  The magazine relies heavily on the support received from all advertisers.
