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. There are many boutique stores, mainly owner operated, that offer unique products and services. 

In 2009 the association started its own magazine, Mairangi Bay Village News, and works closely with community arts, clubs, schools and services. 

The annual Christmas Parade has been in existence for more than 50 years, a tradition that the community loves. The annual food & wine festival, held in February, is a very popular event.

The Business Association is committed to keeping Mairangi Bay one of the North Shore’s premier villages and welcomes any ideas for improvement.
