Our Mission

We built Mighty Ape because we're bananas about online shopping. Our mission is to create the best online store for New Zealanders. :)

We work hard to provide you with great value and a world-class online shopping service. This means sourcing stock locally and ensuring orders are shipped quickly. It means competitive prices and it means being available should anything go wrong...

We also believe in keeping it real. You won't see us burning money on fancy TV ads, unnecessary meetings, fancy offices or even fancy haircuts. Our focus is on serving you, our customer. We understand that our success depends on our ability to keep you happy!

How are we doing? Check out what our customers are saying about us...

What makes Mighty Ape mighty?

We hold stock. Tonnes of stock. When you order an item that's in-stock with us, we'll dispatch it to you on the same day you place your order (3pm cut off time). What's more, our warehouse is located on Auckland's North Shore where most of the local book and game suppliers are based.

We know you don't like to wait for your stuff...and neither do we!

Where did the name Mighty Ape come from?

The name is paying homage to the mighty ape himself - Kong.

Our company

We're proud to be 100% New Zealand-owned (and we plan to stay that way) and we're fiercely independent. The business was founded by Simon Barton who also co-founded Zillion, happysheep and Gameplanet.

Our team is made up of 30+ very dedicated monkeys including: Simon, Vicki, Rose, Gaz, Matt P, Dylan, Shane, Pete, Scott, Tsai, Mike, Moana, Kristin, Ruth, Chris H, Rhia, Chris S, Richard, Hayley, Alastair, Annemarie, Anthony, Matt H, Justin, Mary Anne, Greg, Leona, Toni, Jaimee, Justin, Samantha and Che.

Mighty Ape is run from a warehouse in Albany, on Auckland's North Shore. We're deliberately based close to most of New Zealand game and book distributors. This allows us to pick-up stock from a swag of local distributors and get it out the door fast.
