Style for a steal

Style for a steal

Balmoral’s newest retailer is making obtaining stylish clothing at discounted prices easier than ever… Think international labels at irresistible prices!

By Candice Jackson | 7th May 2015

Who doesn’t love adding stylish pieces to their wardrobes, for an absolute steal! Bargains can be a fashionista’s best friend, but if you think you have to constantly update your watch-list on eBay, buy second-hand at an OP-Shop or choose to go faux for international brands, you’d be wrong.

BUT, don’t worry; we’ll set you straight.

Newest kid on the Balmoral block, The Labels Shop, is not only worth noting, due to its ever-changing selection of international fashion brands, as well as accessories, bags, shoes and unique artworks and homewares, or its extremely low price, or the fact that the stock is brand new, not pre-loved… it's also because the boutique is owned and operated by Endeavour Foundation, with store profits supporting people with disabilities to have the choices of an ordinary life.

The Labels Shop’s buyers search the globe for your shopping pleasure and bring back stylish clothes, shoes and accessories and sell them at discounted prices. The store currently stocks international brands such as Massimo Dutti, Oysho, Pull&Bear, Bershka, Stradivarius, with many more likely on their way.

“Feedback from customers during the first week has been very positive and we hope that with the support of the local community, The Labels Shop by Endeavour Foundation will become a much-loved addition to the Balmoral shopping scene,” Leanne says.

Leanne concludes by mentioning that best of all, store profits support people with a disability to have the choices of an ordinary life – to do the kinds of things that you or I might take for granted. What a great message!
