The new retail outlet for the National Council for the Blind is now open on Main Street Tipperary town.
The shop will raise funds for the organisation and will be located in the former Kingston’s Shoe shop at 15 Main Street trading six days a week (9-5.30) excluding Sunday.
Typically volunteer staff are required to give a minimum commitment of 3 hours – however with a new store management will be flexible.
The outlet, which has been extensively remodelled to be appealing to customers and comfortable for staff, will carry some furniture but donations can only be made with prior approval – clothing, books, shoes, handbags, fully intact children’s toys and household furnishings are also acceptable.
This is the 7th NCBI store in county Tipperary and Elaine Williams area manager says the retail strategy of NCBI is to expand the number of outlets to raise funds for vital services and supports for 55,000 visually impaired people in Ireland.
NCBI also has outlets in Nenagh, Roscrea, Thurles(2), Cashel, Clonmel and Carrick on Suir
