Bargains galore at RSPCA Op Shop
Words by Ashleigh Howarth

A new op shop selling an array of pre-loved and vintage treasures has opened in the Moreton Bay Region, much to the delight of bargain hunters.

Dozens of savvy shoppers visited the RSPCA’s newest store at Brendale over the weekend, after it officially opened on Saturday, July 8.

This is the second RSPCA Op Shop to open in the region, which complements its existing store in Lawnton.

RSPCA Op Shop Area Manager Jeanette Williams said she was thrilled to see so many people turn up for the grand opening.

“We had such a great turnout of people who came down to have a look around and stock up on some goodies,” Jeanette said.

“We would really like to thank the community for coming on down to support us.”

Inside the store you will find racks full of men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, as well as shoes, handbags, jewellery, accessories, homewares, bric-a-brac, gifts, games, puzzles, toys, books and even large furniture items.

“The store really does have something for everyone,” Jeanette said.

“We have lots of great clothing items that are very affordable for families, which is sure to help with the budget, as well as furniture, books, toys and more.

“By shopping with us, you can pay a fraction of the original price. So, if you have got your eyes on a particular item, come down and see us before you buy it brand new because you are likely to save a lot of money.”

All money raised from sales at the store goes towards helping RSPCA care for more than 56,000 animals each year.

The store, which is at 2 Linkfield Rd, Brendale, is open Monday to Saturday but will start trading on Sundays soon.

Calls for more donations and volunteers

The RSPCA is seeking more quality donations and volunteers to help run the new store.

“We would really like to have more donations which we can sell to our customers, so if you have anything at home which is in good condition, please consider dropping it in to us,” Jeanette said.

“It does need to be clean and not torn – if you would buy it for your mother or for a friend, it’s good enough for us.

“We will also need more people to help with sorting through the donations, pricing the items, serving customers and helping the store stay beautiful every day.

“If you would like to help, visit the RSPCA website or drop in store to have a chat with us.”
