North Coast Times - - NEWS - OPEN­ING HOURS

GOOD Sa­mar­i­tans In­dus­tries re­cently opened a sec­ond­hand goods store in But­ler.

Se­nior re­tail op­er­a­tions man­ager Paige Ly­nam said store sites were cho­sen based on vis­i­bil­ity, mar­ket de­mand for the area, con­ve­nience and ac­ces­si­bil­ity for cus­tomers along with sup­ported staff.

Ms Ly­nam said the But­ler Boule­vard lo­ca­tion was a “good fit” for its vis­i­bil­ity, open floor plan and prox­im­ity to pub­lic trans­port.

“But­ler is a grow­ing metropo­lis along the north­ern cor­ri­dor of Perth which in the Mon­day to Wed­nes­day: 9am-5.30pm Thurs­day: 9am-7pm Fri­day: 9am-5.30pm Satur­day: 9am-5pm Sun­day: 11am-5pm

past five years has seen its pop­u­la­tion grow by 37.5 per cent (Cen­sus data 2011, 2016),” she said.

“Our But­ler store fea­tures a wide range of se­cond-hand cloth­ing, shoes, house­hold goods, toys, linen and also a range of new essentials.”

The char­ity spe­cialises in cre­at­ing em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties for peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties and the open­ing of the But­ler store pro­vided four place­ments for peo­ple liv­ing with a dis­abil­ity plus four sup­port work­ers.

The store has two do­na­tion bins for af­ter-hours, or peo­ple can drop off items dur­ing open­ing hours.

“Large items can be ar­ranged for col­lec­tion by our staff by re­quest­ing a pick up on our web­site or by call­ing 1300 GOOD SAMMY,” Ms Ly­nam said.
