The Warehouse in the Community

Neighbourhood Partnerships

Every Warehouse location supports local neighbourhood community organisations through their Customer Choice programme.

The Warehouse’s community strategy is to provide support to not-for-profit community groups or organisations for specific projects which enhance the lives of ‘families and young people’ with an emphasis on the latter. We do not provide support for administrative costs, operational overheads or expenditure. In the case of our Bags for Good programme, the specific project must also be focussed on the geographic area the store services.

When you shop at your local Warehouse store you can grab a token at checkouts that you can place in the voting unit to say which of the three local neighbourhood community organisations the store is supporting and is your choice. At the end of each six month period (February to July period or August to January period) funds raised are given to each of the store community partners according to their percentage of total votes.

If you would like to apply to become a Customer Choice partner with your local The Warehouse store click here.

Did you know? When you purchase a 10 cent plastic shopping bag from The Warehouse all profits go to the stores local neighbourhood community partners.
