QUALITY clothing at $5 an item will be on sale at Next Rotary Generation Invercargill Pop-Up Op Shop on July 8, 9am-5pm.
Although the club already had bags of quality men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, the
group was keen to receive more.
After last year’s successful sale, the group decided to hold another pop-up op shop this year.
Club president Leon Hartnett said almost 1000 items of clothing were sold last year, raising
about $2500 which was donated to Rotary’s Give Kids A Chance fund to help disadvantaged children.
“It was the busiest thing [the pop-up shop] in the Invercargill CBD that day.”
Mr Hartnett said one man in particular was very excited at buying a suit jacket and trousers
for $10 [$5 each], as he had bought a similar jacket and pair of trousers the day before at
another shop in town for $500.
“Now he had two suits for $510… he thought it was a bargain.”
Mr Hartnett was hoping for more donations this year, having already received bags of clothing from Dunedin as well as locally.
As well as last year’s $5 an item for adult’s clothing, the group was pricing three items of
children’s clothing for $5 this year.
The pop-up shop will be held at the Cornerstone Church annex, The Hub, 9 Tay St, which also
had a large children’s play area, and would be open for one day only on Saturday, July 8, 9am-5pm.
“We will also have a coffee machine on site, for people who want to buy a coffee to enjoy
while browsing the racks of clothing.”
Donations of quality clothing are welcome and can be left at Cornerstone Church, on the cor
ner of Clyde and Tay Sts, Tuesday-Friday, 9am-3pm.
