The Waipuna Hospice Shop in Te Puke has been established since 2014. It is the largest second hand store in Te Puke and stocks everything from bric-a-brac, to homewares, clothing, books, tools and furniture. They even receive mystery items which are identified by customers at the counter. Their most unusual item donated to date was a small stash of the locally infamous ‘Te Puke Thunder’ in the pocket of some jeans.
The Te Puke store is staffed by 35 volunteers and 2.4 paid employees and one guard-dog named Angus. It is a colourful and interesting store carefully organised and tastefully displayed with many a treasure to be discovered. Donations are gratefully accepted during their opening hours and all profits from their operation go directly to the Waipuna Hospice.
