CENTRAL GEELONG OP SHOPS AND WHO THEY HELP
Check out the kids clothing and books for $1 per each and the A-frame out the front for current offers. Red Cross Shops sell donated clothing, accessories and home wares to raise funds for Red Cross' humanitarian activities. Each year, they rescue 450 tonnes of clothing from landfill, give opportunities to 4500 volunteers, and generate funds to help Red Cross support vulnerable people in Australia and around the world. The proceeds from the sale of items support the vital everyday work of Red Cross, providing relief in times of crisis and care where it's needed most.

This little Op Shop is full to the brim with clothing, books, manchester and a few homewares. You’ll have to put your best hunting cap on because there are racks at eye level and boxes below and boxes up high full of treasures. If you find something here, chances are it will cost you less than a cup of coffee. Supported by Barwon Health, Victoria's largest regional health service providing high quality, safe, people-focused care to more than 450,000 people in Geelong and South Western Victoria. The charity store raises money that goes back into the hospital costs.

We love the new look Geelong Salvos store now located in Malop Street but what we love more is that every week selected clothing is 50% off. The yellow, blue, purple or orange coloured tags determine what's on sale each week. Next time you are in store, ask a staff member which colour is 50% off. Salvos Stores is the retail arm of The Salvation Army Australian Southern Territory with all profit from the sale of goods contributes to their community programs.

Volunteer at a Op Shop
Volunteers are an integral part to any op shop. They generously offer their time to assist with the day to day running of stores. The value of their contribution is beyond measure. Most op shops are always looking for new volunteers. Any level of contribution is appreciated, whether it is a few hours each week or a few days; it all makes a difference. Anyone can apply to be a volunteer. We suggest you see in-store to find out how.
