Bag op shop week bar­gains at Vin­nies

Geraldton Guardian - - News - Leti­tia Bus­niak

This week is Na­tional Op Shop Week and the St Vin­cent de Paul So­ci­ety has en­cour­aged Ger­ald­ton res­i­dents to up­date their wardrobes for a wor­thy cause.

Dur­ing Na­tional Op Shop week, which be­gan on Au­gust 27 and runs un­til Septem­ber 2, dis­counted sec­ond­hand items will be sold at Vin­nies shops to help fund emer­gency relief as­sis­tance across WA.

Vin­nies State dis­tri­bu­tion cen­tre man­ager Andrew Milne en­cour­aged shop­pers to take ad­van­tage of spe­cials.

“Spe­cial pro­mo­tions will be run­ning in all Vin­nies stores for the en­tire week, so the time is right to re­fresh your wardrobe,” he said.

“Ev­ery item sold at Vin­nies gen­er­ates funds for our sup­port ser­vices and as­sists peo­ple ex­pe­ri­enc­ing dis­ad­van­tage in our com­mu­nity.”

Vin­nies is also call­ing for do­na­tions of women’s win­ter cloth­ing to be dis­trib­uted in WA stores.

Mr Milne said the added de­mand for emer­gency relief as­sis­tance had cre­ated a short­fall in stocks, most no­tably in women’s win­ter cloth­ing.

“De­spite the large num­ber of cloth­ing items sorted daily, there is a sig­nif­i­cant short­fall in women’s win­ter stock and this will have a sig­nif­i­cant im­pact on sup­plies for next year,” he said.

Do­na­tions can be handed in at the Ger­ald­ton store, at 114 Durlacher Street.
