Savers - The Recycle Superstore

Home > Melbourne > Shopping | Sales |
Published July 26th 2011
Do you find it hard to resist walking past a rare bargain find? Are you an op-shop aficionado? Do you love transforming the old into the new? Well then you'll find it hard not to adore Melbourne's famed second-hand store chain Savers.

Created in 1954, the Savers chain was established in San Fransico, and now there is more than 230 stores worldwide that hold the name. These recycle superstores specialise in clothing, but they also stock footwear, accessories, homewares, books, CD's, DVD's and even furniture. Depending on what you're buying, the prices are surprisingly cheap. Clothing prices can range from as low as $2.99 to roughly $24.99.

Fill your wardrobe with Savers finds!


I've found many great dresses, jackets and t-shirts here that I wear frequently. If you're a student, be sure to head down on a Sunday to receive a 20% discount on the presentation of your student card. Seniors also enjoy the perks of old age, with a 20% discount on Mondays.

It's important to set aside a reasonable amount of time if you're planning to trawl the racks of this second-hand warehouse. It takes time to find pieces that fits your style and taste. Also, don't be discouraged if you find something if you really like in a size that's to big for you. Because if you're handy with a sewing machine, you can always tailor the size perfectly to fit you, and not worry about wrecking the garment, as you only paid a maximum $25 for it.

Savers has shops all over Melbourne, in suburbs such as Brunswick, Mill Park, Dandenong, Footscray, Frankston and Greensborough, so you can grab a bargain all over the city.

If you need a cheap clothing solution for an up coming event, or you're just looking to bulk up your wardrobe with some season stables this winter, Savers is a cost effective way to look fashionable whatever the reason.

A great little introduction to the Savers outlets, encourages me to give it a go, Op shops are great and this one sounds like it has everything you could want.
