I hope this is the correct place for this.

 

What are your opinions on supporting New Zealand small businesses?

 

A chap commented recently that an item he wanted to buy of me was the same price at Mighty Ape

 

I replied that mine worked out cheaper as it was freight-free in NZ.

 

I then thought who owns Mighty Ape? Turns out it's an Australian Company Kogan.

 

should that be used as a challenge to purchasing there or is that nieve?

I think it's naive. I support my local florist but not retailers who charge three times what something costs me if I buy overseas (including shipping and GST).

Price for me is also a factor and delivery time etc I take all into account. But if its the same item same price you may then be down to support return ability etc.
