Charity store will close its doors
NANANGO'S Endeavour Foundation store will close at the end of next month.
Leah Dubbelman, national retail manager with Endeavour Foundation, said the Nanango retail store would close on Saturday, November 26.
"Endeavour Foundation operates retail stores purely to raise vital funds to support people with a disability," she said.
"As a result, and due to a combination of the changing retail environment and increasing operational costs, we have had to take the difficult decision to close the Nanango outlet."
Ms Dubbelman said the store did not directly employ people with a disability so the closure would not affect supported employment.
"We know that the hard work and dedication of volunteers at the store has been invaluable to our mission to partner with people with a disability in pursuit of their aspirations," she said.
"We will continue to work closely with them during this process, helping them to find alternative opportunities, including at our fabulous Kingaroy Kitchen.
"Owned and operated by Endeavour Foundation, Kingaroy Kitchen Biscuits & Fine Foods provides employment and training opportunities for 27 people with a disability in the South Burnett region."
