Retail therapy a hit with the residents of Edens Landing

24 August 2021

The residents at Connolly Court – Southern Cross Care Edens Landing  – flocked in droves to enjoy an onsite shopping experience that saw the communal activities room transform into a fashion house for men and women alike.

Gold Coast boutique, Christine’s Collections, created the pop-up store, designed to make it easier for less mobile residents to indulge in some retail therapy.

“Our pop-up stores are generally offered at the change of each season, and always prove a hit with our residents,” Residential Manager, Ravinder Kaur explained.

Making the most of the opportunity to shop, new resident Maureen was delighted with the experience.

“I got a pair of shoes and it was very good. I didn’t think when I came here that I would be able to go shopping. It was a very good idea because I like to choose my own clothes. It was nice to chat with others about what we bought,” Maureen said.

Fellow resident, Betty, also relished the chance to browse and shop in the comfort of her own home.

“I really didn’t need anything, but she had such lovely things!  It was so nice to help others pick out items. It was thoroughly enjoyable and I hope she comes again,” Betty said.
