The COMMUNITY SHOP is a project in Bellville, Western Cape, South Africa.

Come and browse the shop and meet owner RINA and find out more about the Laptop Repairs and Cellphone accessories done by IT man JOHAN.

We aim to offer the best quality of used clothing and goods to a struggling community and sell at absolute affordable prices in today’s extremely bad economy. In turn it will enable us to financially support organisations that give aid and support to brown and white squatter camps, homeless kids and families.

We are calling on the community for support to enable us to achieve this vision.

What do we stock?

  • Clothing
  • Electrical equipment
  • Crockery
  • Linen
  • Television Sets
  • Wool
  • Radios
  • Toys
  • Material
  • Household goods
  • Cellphone Accessories
  • Laptop Repairs and accessories
You will be surprised at what you can buy for a couple of Rand !!
Our hours are:

  • Monday – Friday = 09:00 – 16:30
  • Saturday Mornings = 09:00 – 13:30

Even though we hope to get stock by means of donations we offer payment to those who would like to sell to us at a price reasonably enough to enable us to clean the merchandise and resell at a price that would benefit those who would come to buy from the shop..
You can deliver to us or contact us for collections.

Hierdie winkel se naam "COMMUNITY SHOP" verteenwoordig presies waarvoor dit staan. Ons het klere en 'n wasmasjien, wat ons nie meer gebruik nie, by hul gelaat. Hul het die goedjies verkoop en 30% van die verkoopprys aan ons uitbetaal. 'n Wonderlike idee vir ons omgewing.
