Shop sustainably and buy pre-loved goods at affordable prices.

We’re delighted to begin reopening our stores

As we continue to evolve with the changing environment, we have some important updates to share.

We’re going to take a phased approach to reopening, so we can do it properly, with adequate social distancing and stepped-up hygiene measures firmly in place.

This means our larger stores will open first, and we’ll gladly accept your generous donations during business hours.

All donated items will continue to be quarantined for 48 hours before being sorted. Unfortunately, we cannot receive donated items at stores that are still closed, so for now, please don’t leave goods outside those stores.

We look forward to welcoming everybody back!

Shopping at our op shops

Our stores are conveniently located throughout Melbourne and Greater Geelong, offering a huge variety of high-quality unique items and everyday household essentials. From clothing and accessories to furniture and collectables, there is always something interesting to be found.

When you buy second hand you’re extending the life of goods and the profits from your purchase help fund a range of life-changing community programs. As well as raising much needed funds, our op shops help job seekers develop their workplace skills, and provide work experience to students.

We look forward to you visiting when we reopen after our temporary closure.
