Pop-up Hospice shop for Awapuni
Savvy city second-hand shoppers have a new opportunity to grab a bargain from next week. Arohanui Hospice is set to open a pop-up shop in Awapuni.
Arohanui’s Louise Curtis says initial plans are to open the shop at 92 College Street, next to Liquorland in the Awapuni Shopping Centre, for three months.
‘‘We want to support a new area of Palmerston North. This will be our third shop in [the city] and our sixth shop across the region. We hope the new shop will be well received by the Awapuni community,’’
Other shops in the Arohanui network are being well supported in their localities by customers and by donators of used clothing, toys, furniture and bric-a-brac.
Pop-up shop staff are hoping that if the Roslyn experience is anything to go by, the outlet may become more of a permanent fixture. All proceeds will go towards meeting the $2.2m Arohanui Hospice needs to subsidise its annual core operating costs.
The official ribbon-cutting will take place next Monday March 7 at 10am, with opening hours from 10am to 4pm Monday to Saturday.
