Following along the lines of social solidarity retail, the Magasin collects and resells, at humble prices, various donations from individuals, businesses, and industries. The profits generated from this are the primary source of funding of the Chaînon.

By building an inclusive and engaging environment, the Magasin is proud to uphold local and global pillars of sustainable development. Every year, we are blessed with tireless efforts of volunteers who invest much of their time and energy contributing to our Chaînon store.

Online Shopping


Every purchase from the Chaînon store is a donation that sustains the operation of our organization. We are happy to announce the launch of our online store where we will be selling carefully selected, exclusive items.

It’s a simple concept really: 25 new items are added every week and removed after 60 days of being featured. Stay on the lookout for new arrivals so you can find beautiful gems all while contributing to the Chainon’s cause to support women who are struggling.
