There are rumours that several regional St Vincent De Paul’s stores will be closed by the end of the month, including stores at Penguin, Latrobe and Somerset.

Debbie from Shearwater and Liz from Somerset are volunteers at their respective stores, and they call in this morning to tell Brian Carlton about the news of the closure.

Concerned by this, Brian then speaks to Lar Alexander, CEO of St Vincent De Paul’s. She says that these small store closures are part of a larger picture, and that St Vincent De Paul’s will still be present in these regional communities.
