Anyone looking for nice clothing from international brands does not need to travel all the way to London to go shopping. Kyrenia Animal Rescue has a store in Catalkoy selling fine second-hand clothes by well-known brands. The shop called Gladrags has been around since January 2013 and is located next door to KAR’s office. Everyone who works in the shop are volunteers and all profits go to help homeless dogs and cats in North Cyprus.
Clothes hang in neat rows from their hangers; most of which are second hand but many of them are brand new. Many people are very generous in donating to the shop and the sorting room where all the clothes first arrive is filled from floor to ceiling. It seems like more and more clothes are donated each year. Most of the clothes are for women, but there is also a small section with clothing for men. The labels range from Primark and Debenhams to renowned designer clothing. A big plus is that Gladrags sells swimwear all year round, while most of the other shops have only swimsuits and bikinis on sale in the summer. They also have high quality bras, fashionable accessories like handbags, jewellery and shoes.
If you want to shop at Gladrags, or donate clothing, you can find the store on the map at the bottom of the article.
Opening hours are Monday – Friday 9:30 to 16:30.
