Bargains Galore — not your usual second-hand shop
By Deon Futerman
I have been involved with Bargains Galore Furniture Shop since its inception seven years ago and it has been a privilege to witness the generosity of our Cape Town Jewish Community.
All items in the Bargains Galore Furniture Shop are donated and the shop plays a dual role in the Jewish Community. Furniture and other appliances donated are used to provide less fortunate members in the community in need with home essentials and other items are sold to the public providing some income to JCS, under whose auspices the shop is run, thereby also benefitting the community at large.
Besides furniture and appliances Bargains Galore Furniture Shop also stocks a range of books, CDs, picture frames, vases, lamps, curtains, Judaica items, and art, thus complimenting our sister shop Bargains Galore Clothing Shop which stocks an assortment of clothing, bric-a-brac, kitchenware, crockery and cutlery, toys and general goods. We have been blessed to have received some magnificent furniture collectables and art in the past from our donors.
Having been in sales most of my working career I have enjoyed the challenge which was presented to me with the running of Bargains Galore Furniture Shop, and I am deeply appreciative of the advice and expertise which has been given by members of our community as well as the physical donations.
The continued success of both Bargains Galore shops is dependent on the generosity of our community, and I would ask each and every member of the community to please consider donating any unwanted goods you may have to the shops. We also offer a collection service if required and you can contact JCS office for donations and collections 021 462 5520.
If you have not yet visited the shop please pop in to browse and to meet the team. You may find an item you require at a bargain price. Please consider us as well if you are looking for gifts. All items are second-hand goods but you may find an item in excellent condition at a fraction of the price of buying new. We constantly run ‘specials’ on items in stock as well. Once again, I appeal to the community to please help us go from strength to strength with your continued support.
