Presbyterian Support East Coast (PSEC) charity shops have long been known for quality bargains – clothes, furniture, books, even antiques! And now we can add safe household electrical items to the list thanks to our staff becoming certified tag and testers.
Safety is paramount for our staff, volunteers and customers so we’ve never sold household electrical items in the past. However, due to the number of quality electrical items donated and the subsequent demand for them we took the plunge and got certified.
PSEC Napier Charity Shop Manager, Roslynn Young, says since offering the test and tag service they’ve got a large selection of household electricals available that continuously revolves.
“There are so many quality items available – it’s really exciting seeing them come in and know they’re safe and in good working order to go out for sale,” Roslynn says.
“Some items donated are brand new. Obviously given to people as gifts and they’ve never used them. It’s great to be able to give people the opportunity to have electrical items they couldn’t usually afford brand new.”
Presbyterian Support East Coast Charity Shops also offer a pick-up and delivery service throughout Hawke’s Bay, so if you’re not able to bring your quality donations to the shops you can arrange a time for them to be collected. The only items not accepted are large whiteware items, such as fridges, freezes and washing machines.
“We already have a large range of items built up so come in and check it out.”
