Happy 5th Anniversary, Mine101!!
Mine101, Women’s Community House’s social enterprise, is a unique urban-designed recycled clothing store devoted to providing its customers with the best selection of today’s in-demand designer clothing and footwear at very reasonable prices. One might also find a selection of jewellery, housewares and handbags at our store
Mine101 first opened its doors on March 25th, 2011 with just three volunteers and a store manager. The store was open Tuesday to Saturday during the first few months of operation. It wasn’t long before we were able to expand the store team to three employees and twelve volunteers, allowing for increased hours of operation. Mine101 is now open 7 days a week!
It is exciting to report that our customer base has grown over the years, and every day we enjoy meeting new people and sharing our story. Our customers and donors love to shop and to give. We are so grateful that they choose to do so at Mine101 and Women’s Community House. This allows us to continue to offer the best quality items at great prices every day!
This month, March 2016, marks five years of operation for Mine101, and we are celebrating. On Thursday, March 31st, we will be fully stocked with beautiful things at amazing prices with an additional 25% off! From 5 to 9 p.m., Mine101 will be hosting a shopping party with refreshments and treats. There may even be CAKE!
Thanks to all who have shopped at Mine101 and, indirectly, supported services and programs for abused women and their children at Women’s Community House. We are also grateful for those who donate clothing, shoes, handbags and accessories through our Donations Drop-Off Centre at our Wellington Road location as some of these items make their way to Mine101 in order to support our social enterprise.
Come help us celebrate our 5th anniversary on March 31st! We look forward to seeing you there!!
