HOW IT WORKS
Where does our stock come from?
It comes from various sources including;
1) Clothing Bin Contracts,
2) Recycling projects,
3) Woollen Mills,
4) Clothing manufacturers,
5) Carpet Manufacturers,
7) Surplus stock.
8) Seconds and Opportunity shops.
Hundreds of dedicated employees sort the incoming stock in to those items deemed suitable for sale in our stores, only the very best quality makes it onto the shop floor. It is value priced to sell in the same week. Unsold stock is removed after 4 weeks.
All wearable clothing etc that is unsuitable for sale in SaveMart stores is sent to Papua New Guinea where there is great need for clothing especially in the highland villages.
Inevitable there will be garments and material that are not able to be used again as originally intended, these can still be recycled as follows;
Cottons are made into Cleaning Rags, Knitted woollens and acrylic go to India to be made into blankets for relief organisations, Carpet yarn is used in the insulation industry.
Our aim is to recycle everything possible.
