Shop on Carroll – the new social hub

Shop on Carroll, our charity op shop located at 169 Princes Street, Dunedin, is fast becoming a destination shop with a social focus.

Last year Christmas shoppers enjoyed live music and carols with both volunteers and staff getting into the spirit! It was a fun and festive atmosphere for all.

“We are thrilled to see people enjoying the social aspect of Shop on Carroll, and we are excited to be able to offer more community events this year – look out for our Vintage Fashion Show coming up in March! Any further vintage donations gratefully accepted,” says Retail Co-Manager, Fiona Dodds.

Community events are starting with a jewellery making group. Keep an eye out on the shop’s social media pages for more details on activities and opportunities!

Retail Co-Manager, Cristin Waite, is thrilled with the new premises which offers so much more than the former site in Carroll Street.

“The bigger and better space allows us to support these community events,” says Cristin.

“Shop on Carroll continues to raise much-needed funds to help Presbyterian Support Otago’s Family Works and Enliven community services.”

“We couldn’t do what we do without the support of our amazing volunteers and the greater community who have really pitched in with their time and services, going above and beyond to help our community.”

A very special thank you to everyone who has donated their pre-loved items. Not only do your treasures have a new lease on life, they help raise money for our community!

We would appreciate any donations for the upcoming cooler months, especially menswear. These will gratefully be accepted at Shop on Carroll, 169 Princes St, Dunedin. Thank you!
