Opening Hours & Drop Offs

Hi. Murray here from Digital Life. Thanks for finding my website. Digital Life is a small business that I am growing alongside my full time job as a librarian in a school. Therefore my hours when I am available is usually after 4PM during the week and on Saturdays. Video tapes can be dropped off during those times at 4D Owens Terrace, Upper Riccarton, Christchurch.
