The Hospice Shoppe
An Upscale Resale Experience

Visit our 4,000 square foot upscale boutique and see what’s new each week. Savvy shoppers will find one-of-a-kind clothing and décor items at the best prices in town!

100% of the proceeds fund care at Bobby’s Hospice, our community palliative care facility that cares for over 170 people each year who need in-patient palliative care and grief support. Some of these people are your neighbors, friends and perhaps even family members.

Community Partnerships and Recycling

Hospice is committed to supporting our community non-profit partners and recycling as much as possible. All excess goods not sold in the Shoppe are donated to New Brunswick Community Living who sells it to Value Village. The revenue they earn from these sales helps fund their many programs and services for people with intellectual disabilities and their families. We also share special items we cannot sell with other local charities to help with their work.

How your Donation to The Hospice Shoppe Benefits Our Community
    • The Hospice Shoppe is an upscale second-hand boutique that sells high quality clothing and household items that are current and like new. Our prices are in keeping with used items for sale at other local second hand shops, ie, Value Village, Frenchies, Exchange on Germain, etc.
    • If your donation is selected for sale in The Shoppe, your donor number will be placed on the sales tag and your item will be put for sale in The Shoppe at the time when it is
      most likely to sell.
    • If your donation it is not selected for The Shoppe, it will be donated to NB Community Living who will sell it to Value Village and use the funds to care for people in NB with an intellectual disability.
    • Merchandise in The Shoppe must move quickly. If your item does not sell in a timely fashion, it may be put in the discount section at one-half the original sale price or it may be removed from The Shoppe and donated to NB Community Living.
    • Your donations that sell in The Shoppe are eligible for an income tax receipt for the value paid by the customer. It will be mailed to you by March of each year.

    All of your donations made to The Shoppe are helping someone in need. If they sell in The Hospice Shoppe, the revenue helps us provide in-patient palliative care at Bobby’s Hospice. If it is donated to Community Living it helps people with an intellectual disability. It’s a win-win!
