Canberrans, we need your support!


We’ve had a lot of challenges this year due to recent construction works that closed off car parks and part of the footpath. The resulting downturn in customers has not only affected us, but other businesses in Braddon have had to close.

We need extra support from the vegan community to get us through this tough time or we may end up in dire straits.

The Cruelty Free Shop offers something very unique to Canberra. We are the only vegan supermarket in the territory and we have more than 3,000 vegan products under the one roof.

In the time that we’ve been here – less than two years – we’ve helped raise more than $24,000 for local vegan charities and sanctuaries through selling merchandise, holding bake sales and BBQs, sponsorships and donations, our Charity of the Month program, and our Christmas appeal.

The groups we’ve supported include Little Oak SanctuaryWhisker Woods SanctuarySignal Hill SanctuaryVegan ACTPossumwoodAnimal Liberation ACTThe Furry Bottom RetreatA Poultry PlaceAnimal Defenders OfficeBillie Dean Deep Peace TrustLucky Stars Sanctuary Inc, and more.

We help people become and stay vegan every day of the week. Our friendly team are vegan and are all involved in activism, events or the vegan community outside of their jobs.

Our shop also encourages local businesses to provide more vegan options through events such as the Vegan Day Out.

The Cruelty Free Shop is more than just a shop – we are a big part of Canberra’s vegan community. Please support us so we can stay!

It’s easy to get to the Cruelty Free Shop. We encourage people to walk, cycle or take public transport, but for those needing to drive – your first hour of parking is on us ( and we have a handy map showing car parks within walking distance (

We also have a great loyalty program that earns you rewards every time you shop with us.
