Hoola Hoop Gets Behind Frocktober Canberra For Ovarian Cancer Research!!!

By Hoola Hoop - 8 September 2010 4

As a significant retailer of 50’s & 60’s inspired classic frocks, Hoola Hoop in Braidwood has decided to get behind a major charity drive to raise money and awareness for Ovarian Cancer Resarch!

“Frocktober” invites women (and men), to wear a frock every day on all 31 days of next month!!!

Hoola Hoop has decided to donate 5% of the sale price of any frock sold between now and October 31st!!! All you have to do is mention that your frock is for “Frocktober” when you purchase it! This includes items from our new summer range which is now in stock!!!

We have also set up a special category (Frocktober), in our webstore. Items in this category have not only been reduced greatly, but also a up to 25% of the sale price will be donated to the Frocktober casuse!!!

Come on everyone get behind Frocktober!!!!! For more details on Hoola Hoop and how you can help the Frocktober cause go to: www.hoolahoop.com.au.

What’s Your opinion?

Yes I agree that it’s best to steer away from an inane argument!
We never claimed to be giving all profits to charity!!! How could anyone expect a business to continue trading without making a profit? We very clearly stated in the original post that between 5% and 25% would be donated to the cause!

Only a very negative and angry person replies to a post put up by someone acting in good will by denigrating them in the first sentence of their comment on that particular post!

Do you not understand that small businesses work tirelessly to survive in today’s economic environment. We are a small business that whilst fighting that battle, endeavours to proffer a unique, high quality range, reasonably priced product range that would otherwise be unavailable in the region.

We are trying to direct a little of what little we get in return to a worthy cause! It doesn’t help either small business or the charity in question when people are so negative about someone who’s actually attempting to do something positive.

If you want to hang shit on shops – pick on Coles and Woolworths!

Not only is extremely rude to follow up our post by claiming that our prices are “scary” after us making a benevolent offer to support a fund raising event; it also shows how completely out of touch you must be!!!! Especially since we are one of the few shops in the region that does cater for plus sizes!!

We sell Australian and U.S designer made frocks / dresses for between $75 and $175 averaging $120 – Well within the price bracket of an average department store – a head and shoulders ahead in terms of quality!!

Check out the Salvos Op shop for some left over 70’s Kaftans!

Oh, I do belive you have delibretly misinterpreted my post. I said I was scared off by your prices. I did not say the prices were scary. I mean if the prices were spiders or snakes or Jason Donovan well yes I would be scared. Look, you have your opinion about your prices and I have my opinion about your prices. How about we agree to disagree? I mean you’re not going to win me as a customer by acusing me of being rude. Particuarly as the prime reason behind your “benevolace” is probably an effort to boost your sales. Yes, I see the value in you supporting this worth while charity, and I applaud it, I wish you the best of sucess in your efforts, but I don’t expect that you’d be giving all of the profits of the sales to charity.

Well having taken a look at the Hoolahoop web site and being scared off by the prices, one has to wonder where one could buy a frock in Canberra for a better price? I’ve noticed that there are not a hugh number of shops that sell dresses in larger sizes 16-22 around. Anyone have reccomendations for shops that do sell dresses in those sizes?

Also, what’s the difference between a frock and a dress?

Also here’s some more info on the event:
