It was with MUCH excitement that the Gordon Allen Foundation Trust took possession of a large and very cool building in Vogel St last week

Pictured are Otago Community Hospice Trustee and broker of the building purchase Merrin Bath handing keys over to Foundation Trustee Greg Easton. 

This building is going to house a Super Hospice Shop - 650 square metres of second hand goodness and a large sorting, storage and distribution centre.

The concept of a Superstore has been in the planning for many months, following a review of the Dunedin shops in late 2018. 

127 Vogel St is situated in the heart of the historical Warehouse precinct. Originally a Dalgetys Wool store built in the 1890s, it has had many uses including a Countdown supermarket and most recently a pharmaceutical distribution centre.

"The building is full of historic charm but needs some major renovations to make it fit for purpose for a Hospice Superstore. We will be working with all involved staff and volunteers from George St and Bond St Shops to come together to create an amazing magic commercial Superstore to continue growing our sustainable income to support Hospice services," says Hospice CEO Ginny Green.
