Waterford SPCA's charity shop celebrated its tenth birthday recently with a coming together of volunteer workers and customers who have supported it over the years.
The SPCA shop is located beside the charity's office in Summerland Square, Upper Yellow Road (opposite the Mercy Secondary School). While the premises may be "cosy" in terms of square footage, the quality of the products for sale is high according to manager Nuala. All items for sale are kindly donated by the general public of Waterford and further afield who have actively supported the charity shop since it opened its doors ten years ago.
The Shop sells a wide range of goods including women's, men's and children's clothes, books and bric-a-brac. For many people, it is a place to drop into on a regular basis, to browse at their leisure and chat with staff. Nuala attributes its success to a combination of factors - good quality, lowest prices, helpful staff, friendly atmosphere and the chance of a bargain. She says customers know that if they are looking for a particular item, she will search the stockroom for it and contact them if it is found. Otherwise, customers details are kept on file in case item is donated in the near future.
Every item donated and every item bought is of great benefit to the work of Waterford SPCA. The Society expresses its thanks to all its regular donors, customers and volunteer staff without whom the last ten years would not have been possible. In these difficult time, nothing is taken for granted.
