Two New Op Shops Opened North of the River
Two new Op Shops have recently opened North of the River, and both are run by volunteers from Save the Children.
Factory outlet, Malaga
Andrea Townley, the State Retail Operations Manager advised me that they now have 17 op shops throughout the metropolitan area, and the latest one to open is their giant Warehouse Clearance Outlet situated at 4/516 Alexander Drive, Malaga.

Here you will find a huge range of both men's and women's clothes.
One rack of the many women's clothes
Children's toys and clothes are a great reason to drop in here as they have some gorgeous things at such reasonable prices, many of the clothes being just $3.
A big selection of books of all types which was where I spent a lot of the time!
Just a very small section of their book range
They also have a rack of ball gowns and with the ball season about to start, this would be a good place to start looking for a dress, as it is so much cheaper than buying it retail and especially if you only wear it once or twice!
Homewares and bric-a-brac is represented in this shop all down one wall, so there is a lot of choice.
A small part of their homewares range
There is a great range of shoes and handbags.
As well as belts, ties, purses and scarves, and many old vinyl records for the collector (at just $2 each), CD's, and a big range of DVDs.
Come and look at their jewellery section as well as art for your walls -both of these are very well priced and interesting.
Check out their jewellery!
They are open from 9.30 am to 4.30 pm Monday to Friday, and there is off street parking right in front of the Clearance Outlet.
Save the Children is an international Charity that provides help to children both in war-torn countries and disaster areas, as well as poorer countries, and also children throughout Australia.
Save the Children relies purely on volunteers to manage and run their shops, and they are always looking for more volunteers to join their fun team. More information on their work can be seen here.
A few of the volunteers at the new Outlet
Andrea informed me that Save the Children have also opened a new store at 35 Ocean Keys Boulevard, Clarkson, and their hours are 9.30 am to 4.30 pm Monday to Saturday. Although I have not yet visited this one, I will do so, as I find Save the Children op shops always clean, tidy and they have friendly volunteers.
If you are interested in volunteering at any of Save the Children op shops, Andrea asks that you contact one of these people via email:
Always nice to know about new op shops opening, I hope they do well, get plenty of support and I will take my self for a little visit. Do they have toilets just in case I am there for hours having a really good look around. Don't laugh I'm sure I 'm not the only Nanna who might need to use a loo. A Mum with children
might find it handy.
