If you too have a passion for retro, vintage, and pre-loved threads and you're a Melburnian who is serious about wardrobe pursuits, then Value City Super Savers, in Preston, is certainly worth adding to your list of top spots for shopping.
Value City has the coats, shirts, shoes, jackets and handbag sections that most other recycled fashion stores have, except that at Value City, they seem to be very selective about what goes onto their racks and they are constantly updating what's available.
Somebody there knows their labels and I have been happy in the past to be able to secure Alannah Hill, Guess, Bardot and Diana Ferrari items, all for under ten dollars a piece. Recently, I noticed there was a genuine Louis Vuitton among the wallets in the store and it's not unusual to come across Italian imports, British tops or funky, Asian brands while shopping there.
At Value City the garments are clean and well ordered. The aisles are wide enough from prams but it is a condition of entry that children are to be supervised at all times. The store proudly supports recycling, however not being a charity does not accept clothing donations.
They are offering the current promotion of a 10% discount off purchases, redeemable by using vouchers printed from their Facebook page. If you have a Seven's Sunrise Family card, you can use it for 10% off as well.
