Today we announced the opening of the Good Sammy online store, shop.goodsammy.com.au.
The Good Sammy online store will provide customers a new way to shop, support our existing retail network and allow us to continue their work in creating employment opportunities and pathways for people with disabilities.
The current global situation has highlighted a number of challenges for the retail sector, and we’re happy to offer customers the ability to shop with us from home as well as in-store. “Our aim is to create a seamless shopping experience for our customers whether that be online or in store. Our customers can now shop from the comfort of their homes or visit our 28 store locations for a unique op-shopping experience. We will also be offering click and collect which will be rolled out across our retail network, starting with our Cannington store,” commented Chief Customer Officer, Jason Rhine.
“We look forward to seeing the success of our online store and how it will evolve,” commented CEO, Melanie Kiely. “It provides a unique op-shopping experience for our customers, enables us to create even more employment opportunities for people with disability and a new platform for people to participate and contribute to the Good Sammy purpose.”
We are constantly receiving notifications from our followers on social media about what great things they have found in-store, we want to make this a possibility for everyone. We have carefully curated our collection to compete in the digital space, focussing on high quality, hard-to-find collectibles and unique items. Items sold online are able to be shipped throughout Australia or available for Click & Collect.
Recycled bulk-pack items will also be available; such as Lego, book packs, jewellery making packs and bead packs. We also have a limited range of handmade items, created by our staff and volunteers at Good Sammy stores during the COVID-19 shutdowns which include tote bags made from recycled materials and hand-knitted babywear.
As always, our items stocked online are unique and one of a kind, which means it’s first in, best dressed. We urge customers to subscribe to us, to receive special offers, new arrival drops and updates about our stores. We’re looking forward to adding new stock weekly.
Good Sammy plays a vital role in providing employment opportunities and pathways for people with disability. The Good Sammy online store provides a platform to continue this mission, and provide more employment opportunities in the online retail and digital space for those wishing to explore.
We thank our customers for their continued support in making these dreams a reality.
