Charity shop is better than ever in brand new location.
The plan to move the New Norfolk Vinnies Shop was well underway at the time of the fire that seriously damaged the existing shop in early July. The new shop at 44 High Street is a far more prominent location and the floor space has been massively increased. But it’s not the space that is the big deal . . . it’s how the space has been used to make the shopping experience far more pleasurable.
Well-respected local retailer Nicky Rouleston who has owned and operated My Attic boutique for 16 years in High Street is the new shop manager. She also has the role of Visual Merchandiser for Vinnies Tasmania. Nicky’s expertise and eye for style will revolutionise how donated goods will be presented in Vinnies shops around the state.
“It’s getting tougher out there for people all the time and Vinnies has been side by side with Valley residents for about 50 years”.
The new shop officially opened on 25th October and was met with praise and thanks from the community.
Nicky and the team urge all members of the community to come into the store to purchase items because revenue from sales supports their services and is a conduit for people who are in need of help. The store also relies on people volunteering their time, energy and skill for a range of activities. Anyone interested in getting involved with the revitalised Vinnies Shop can drop in and see Nicky in-store.
Having great things to sell relies on the generous donation of goods from the local community.
Vinnies Shop at 44 High Street New Norfolk is open Monday to Saturday from 9am to 5pm.
