Comment News (Gosnells) - - News -

THE new St Vin­cent de Paul shop and head of­fice which re­cently opened in Can­ning Vale will pro­vide the com­mu­nity with a new op shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence.

Re­tail op­er­a­tions man­ager Signe Balodis said vol­un­teers were needed to help get the new fa­cil­ity off the ground and put the call out to peo­ple in the area.

“We need vol­un­teers to help out in store as­sist­ing with cus­tomer ser­vice, ring­ing up sales through the reg­is­ter and gen­eral mer­chan­dis­ing,” she said.

“Our vol­un­teers al­ways have a great time and en­joy the friendly and sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment along with the op­por­tu­nity to give back to the com­mu­nity by giv­ing some of their time.”

Vol­un­teers are trained in all ar­eas of work­ing in a re­tail en­vi­ron­ment in­clud­ing reg­is­ter oper­a­tion, cus­tomer ser­vice, sort­ing, pric­ing do­na­tions and mer­chan­dis­ing.

“We look for­ward to en­gag­ing with the com­mu­nity through our shop and are con­fi­dent the lo­cal com­mu­nity will be sup­port­ive,” Mrs Balodis said.

“Vin­nies shops pro­vide more than a re­tail op­por­tu­nity, they are piv­otal in pro­vid­ing wel­fare sup­port to peo­ple who are do­ing it tough.”

Prof­its from the sale of all goods go di­rectly to­wards Emer­gency Re­lief As­sis­tance as well fund­ing im­por­tant sup­port ser­vices for the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

The new shop is lo­cated at 9 Brewer Road, Can­ning Vale.
