Our Store is open
Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday 10am – 4pm
Saturday from 9am – 2pm
We have only one GPAI Creative store and a workshop studio in the space below our store which was once a tired looking old undercover car park. Currie Street is the main road through our lovely town, and we are situated between McDonalds, Heretics Haven, and Downtown Burgers (great if you need a snack).
Our store is a wonderful eclectic collection of creative ingenuity, up-cycling, re-purposing and great design with the inclusion of a unique Charity Golf Store. We do confuse newcomers until we explain who we are and what we do. You may browse through Golf Books and Golf Equipment as easily as selecting from a large range of hand-made cushions, cards and ottomans for a gift.
Our Store Manager, Michelle is also the business mentor for our students with intellectual disabilities. We have many volunteers who help out in store and students currently going through our Business, Retail and Creativity program. Head of Creative Projects, Jill Keating is an accomplished artist and works very hard on a number of creative ideas and projects including our annual Art Competition/Calendar helping Michelle to roll out some unique creative concepts for our trainees and students.
President and PGA Professional Darrell Dalton is in store as often as possible when not on the golf course giving lessons or delivering specialty golf programs. Members and customers appreciate Darrell’s advice on golf equipment, lessons or the right book to help with their slice. Our disability students are keen to learn all they can from Coach on coarse and in store.
Our product range is diverse and our business model is unique.
With donations of raw materials making up most of our building blocks GPAI Creative works on projects to develop processes and creative experiences for our students who not only assist with concept and design, but are encouraged to see the end game or the final product ready for sale. Our students are involved from the receiving of the donation to the selling of the product to the customer in store. Able to offer their own style or creativity ideas has enabled our students to expand their imagination and their ownership of the goods created. In some cases, the student is able to start their own enterprise and develop their own brand and range which will be sold in the GPAI Store. A great success so far and more to come with our larger space downstairs in our Basement Studio.
