Op-shop box full of new ideas

South Waikato News - - Your Paper, Your Place - LUKE KIRKEBY

It’s hoped Toko­roa’s PAWS op­shop will soon be burst­ing with a box full of in­no­va­tive ideas.

Staff at the op-shop in Man­ner­ing St have set up a shoe­box for cus­tomers to be able to drop in their ideas of what they would like to see added, changed, or im­proved at the shop.

Store man­ager Ju­lian Leite said due to vol­un­teers be­ing limited for time, while still want­ing to do right by cus­tomers, it’s hoped the idea shoe­box will solve the prob­lem.

‘‘We have al­ways had a re­quest book where peo­ple can say they are look­ing for some­thing and if it comes through we can put it aside for them and give them a call but this is go­ing to give as an ex­tra ad­van­tage be­cause we will get ex­tra ideas,’’ he said.

‘‘We have a lot of peo­ple who come in al­most ev­ery day re­li­giously and gen­er­ally they give us ideas or tell us that some­thing is look­ing a bit the same so we can change it but rather than hav­ing vol­un­teers write them out all the time, peo­ple will be able to just drop them in the box and we will go through them once a month.’’

‘‘Of course there are go­ing to be some silly ideas but there will be a lot of good ones as well.’’

‘‘When we flick through them there might be a few ‘‘wows, we never thought of that’’ and we will re­ally spring on those ones. Who knows we might get some re­ally juicy ideas,’’ he said.
