Camberwell Salvos

Home > Melbourne > Charity | Shopping | Vintage and Retro
Published May 22nd 2012
The Salvos Store in Camberwell located at 529 Riversdale Road Camberwell has a great variety of clothes, books, shoes, ornaments, dishes, and fashion accessories that are appropriately priced given that it is all recycled goods.



The prices range depending on what items are in stock, however the prices are much cheaper than recommended retail price and they have a huge selection of goods that are mostly comprised of fair to very good quality items and some items even look new.

The service provided was what is to be expected from that kind of store, it was friendly and helpful but they do lack in floor space for the amount of clothes mainly that take up most of the room.
Men's clothes are at the back near the furniture, but the men's section of the store is not even close to the size of the women's section. It seems that in the clothing section that takes up about 80% of the floor space and of that 80% there is only one small section that is men's clothing.

There is hardly any furniture at this store given the amount of space that the store has and the fact that it has to be close to the back door given the logistics of it as there is a rise towards the back of the store and that makes it difficult for them to move the furniture around.

The books and cd's are also up the back of the store and it appears to be tucked away in the back corner. There is a big selection of books but not very many CD's and DVD's which could be an opportunity for them if they can get enough donations.

Overall the service and shopping experience was rather enjoyable and the selection of goods within the shop was rather expansive. It is to be recommended if you are in the market for second hand goods.
