We have temporarily closed our op shops

Unfortunately, due to the Victorian State Government’s Stage 4 COVID-19 restrictions, all of our stores are temporarily closed, with the exception of Grovedale in regional Victoria. We hope to re-open soon after the restrictions have lifted.

This means we can no longer receive or collect donated goods in Melbourne. While we are closed, please don’t leave goods outside our stores.

Learn about the ways you can continue to support our mission to serve the most disadvantaged in our community, who need us now more than ever.

Shopping at our op shops

Our stores are conveniently located throughout Melbourne and Greater Geelong, offering a huge variety of high-quality unique items and everyday household essentials. From clothing and accessories to furniture and collectables, there is always something interesting to be found.

When you buy second hand you’re extending the life of goods and the profits from your purchase help fund a range of life-changing community programs. As well as raising much needed funds, our op shops help job seekers develop their workplace skills, and provide work experience to students.

We look forward to you visiting when we re-open after our temporary closure.
