The two- storey section of the former store on the right is staying. Contractors are building a new roof over the gutted middle section, formerly Ballentyne's, which moved to The Mall. The space is being turned into offices for the Defence Force.

"This week we sadly lost our three peccaries, Kermit, Gonzo and Animal, who had to be euth- anased for humane reasons," said Wellington Zoo chief executive Karen Fifield. "While their unique personalities will be sorely missed by zoo staff and visitors alike, we have taken this opportunity to include a significant New Zealand species in our collection. We are very excited to welcome our new residents". The unnamed arrivals are housed in the former peccary enclosure at the front of the zoo and will eventually live in the planned New Zealand-themed "Meet the Locals" precinct, which will be developed at the zoo in the next few years. Throughout May and June visitors who are keen to see the zoo s most recent arrivals can catch the bus and get half- price entry. Research has shown that kunekune pigs are distinct from both Pacific pigs, and a range of common European breeds. The name kunekune comes from the Maori word kune, which means to swell, or be plump. In the late 1970s the breed was "rediscovered" and at the time it was estimated there were only about 50 purebred kunekune left in New Zealand. They now num- ber in the thousands. Mall Whitcoulls closing Upper Hutt s Whitcoulls branch is to close -- although it is unclear exactly when. Last week it was announced the James Pascoe Group, which owns Farmers, Pascoes and Prouds, has bought 62 Whitcoulls and Borders bookshops after the previous own- ers collapsed from debts. But the purchase excludes three quake-damaged stores in Christ- church and branches in Upper Hutt, Papamoa near Tauranga and the Albany mall. In April Whitcoulls stores at airports were sold to a travel retail specialist. Upper Hutt s branch of Whit- coulls was for many years in the Hazelwood s building.
