In October 2005, Midlands Simon Community opened our first shop, located in Athlone. The shops are another way to show solidarity with those experiencing homelessness throughout the year.
There is a fantastic selection of top quality goods to choose from, for everyone in the family. You can get anything from clothes (men’s, ladies and children’s), jewelry, home-ware and accessories to DVD’s, books and video games.
It is also a very welcome opportunity to find excellent value for money and at the same time show that ethical shopping and excellent quality can go hand in hand.
Midlands Simon Community Shops also provide an opportunity to volunteer by either working in the shop itself or by assisting to source stock and goods to sell in the shop. The shops provide another very valuable source of funding for the organisation.
