New Zealand Red Cross Celebrates Opening Of New Dominion Road Shop

New Zealand Red Cross today officially opened a new, “bigger, brighter, better” retail shop at 184-196 Dominion Road, Auckland.

The new store replaces two smaller New Zealand Red Cross stores in the area and should be easier for customers to find and to access, Director of Retail Talei Kitchingman says.

The new Dominion Road store is part of a network of New Zealand Red Cross shops throughout New Zealand, contributing to what Talei calls “the circle of doing good”.

“People donate quality items, which means they are not going to landfill, and we can then provide an opportunity for valuable pre-loved products to be enjoyed and used by others. This service also financially supports Red Cross and our humanitarian work in this community and across New Zealand.

“I’d like to express my heartfelt thanks to the community of Mt Eden for their support at our old stores and encourage them to come and check out our new location. We also welcome new volunteers in this and our other retail stores, and, of course, continued donations of good quality items including furniture and home wares.

“Whether purchasing, donating or volunteering, you’re helping your community and the work of New Zealand Red Cross.”

Gordon Campbell: On National Spreading Panic About The Economy

It is a political strategy as old as time. Scare the public with tales of disaster and stampede them into supporting your ideological agenda because they believe There Is No Alternative. Yet, if the NZ economy truly is as “fragile” as PM Christopher Luxon says it is... Then how come New Zealand has enjoyed a double AA+ credit rating from the international rating agencies for so long? If we have truly been in the thrall of incompetent tax, spend and borrow extremists for the past six years, how come our net government debt burden is only in the middling average of OECD countries, and how come our government debt-to-GDP ratio – however you measure it – is less than half the average for the Asia-Pacific region?..
