Shopping with Save the Children is all about giving

Building on more 30 years of retail in communities throughout New Zealand, Save the Children is opening two new flagship stores in Wellington and Christchurch.

“Save the Children shops in communities throughout New Zealand raise funds and awareness to benefit the lives of children around the world, and our new stores build on this by offering a range of high quality sustainable and ethically made products from New Zealand suppliers,”says Genea Instone, Retail Operations Manager for Save the Children New Zealand.

“The new stores definitely appeal to all your senses: aromatic candles and body care, the softest of baby clothes and delicious chocolates mostly from boutique New Zealand suppliers. From the moment you purchase these gifts they begin giving and that feels good too!” says Ms Instone.

The new Save the Children stores were designed by architect Paul Lee and incorporate eco-friendly materials including New Zealand pine and ‘green’ carpet that is backed with recycled plastic and both pvc and oil-free.

“Like our existing network of shops, the new Save the Children stores are community minded and we share this focus with our New Zealand suppliers,” says Ms Instone.

Save the Children’s new stores are located at 173 Cuba Street Wellington and 83 Cashel Street Mall Christchurch stocking a range of New Zealand products including Four Corners jewellery, Hydropal filtered drink bottles, Impish baby clothes, Kowtow, La Mai Coffee, Linden Leaves, Living Light candles, Obiqo, Silkbaby, t Leaf ea, and The Seriously Good Chocolate Company as well as the iconic kiwiana toys Buzzy Bee and Mary Lou.

Save the Children began in England in 1919 and is the world’s leading independent organisation for children with programmes in more than 120 countries. In 1947 Save the Children New Zealand was launched in North Canterbury, and there are now 32 branches throughout the country with volunteers operating 30 shops.
