Thrift Store, Cafe, Laundry & Online Auction
The Sunset Community operates a Not For Profit Thrift Store & laundry (Social Enterprise) at 18 Water Street in Oxford, Nova Scotia.
What is a Social Enterprise?
A social enterprise is a business or organization operated for the purpose of addressing social, cultural or environmental challenges. The majority of profits and surpluses are reinvested to support community needs.
Our aim is to provide quality training/skills building/work opportunities for persons with disabilities in the local area and beyond. The clients we serve will have the opportunity to learn all aspects of running a store in areas such as cleaning, merchandising, customer support, cafe operations, laundry operations, store promotion, online auction support services and many other areas that are integral in making a store run smooth and successfully. The skills gained working with us at our store will be transferable to many other potential employment areas for those we work with.

- Laundry Service – coin operated and commercial – fluff and fold service to the general public along with the ability to provide services to corporations
- Thrift store selling used clothing and other small items
