Our store hours are 9:00am till 5:00pm Monday-Friday, and 10:00am to 3:00pm Saturday or on public holidays.

Salvation Army Family Stores are a great way to recycle clothing, furniture, household goods, toys and books, and help struggling households.
The goods we sell make a huge difference to people’s lives and provide much-needed relief in tight household budgets. Profits from goods and clothing sold through our Family Stores support our community work by way of the foodbank, training courses, transitional housing, budgeting and other programs.
Family Stores are win-win—someone’s unwanted goods are often other people’s treasures. Your donations will be re-loved by someone else, raise funds for your community, and be saved from landfill! Nationally 16,000 tonnes is saved from landfill each year thanks to New Zealanders shopping at Family Stores! That’s the weight of 6.5 Olympic-size swimming pools!
Your generosity helps us make a difference by building better communities.
