First ever Enable Ireland homeware pop up shop opens in Limerick
By I Love Limerick Correspondent Maxine Bramley
Enable Ireland has opened its first-ever homeware pop up shop right here in Limerick for the run-up to Christmas.
The shop situated at Honan’s Quay, stocks furniture, shoes, books, soft furnishing, linen, nursery goods and a wide variety of seasonal items just in time for Christmas.
The first of its kind is situated at Honan’s Quay and launched on Friday, November 24th and its opening hours are Thursday, Friday and Saturday weekly from 9.30 am to 5.30 pm.
When asked about why Enable Ireland opened their first pop up homeware shop in Limerick, Mary Hynes, Enable Ireland’s Retail Area Manager told I Love Limerick: “We have a very strong presence in Limerick with our two service centres and our current retail shop on Upper William St, so when the opportunity arose it made perfect sense. We’ve been providing services in Limerick since 1988 and have always had a really positive reaction from the local community.”
At the moment the initial plan is that the pop up shop will remain open for a year. Meanwhile, Enable Ireland’s existing charity shop on 4 Upper William Street continues to provide customers with great value and quality preloved clothes and goods all year round.
“The shop at Honan’s Quay is the first of its kind for Enable Ireland. At the moment there are no immediate plans to open another pop up store, but we are always on the lookout for ways to grow and develop so if new opportunities come our way we are certainly open to it,” Mary Hynes said in regards to opening more homeware pop up shops around Ireland.
The shop will accept donations of unwanted items to be resold or recycled to raise funds for Enable Ireland’s disability services. They love to receive donations of clean clothing, shoes and accessories, ornaments, towels and linen, crockery, cutlery and glassware, collectables and antiques, DVDs and mobile phones.
Enable Ireland has been providing disability services to children and adults in Limerick since 1988 and provides adult day services to 50 adults with disabilities from its centre in Quinn’s Cross, Mungret, and Castleconnell. Enable Ireland charity shops to raise much-needed funds to help support these services.
