Our very first Red Cross Shop to open in Western Sydney is here.
Friday May 27, 2016
Who doesn't love a good ribbon cutting?! Thanks to our volunteer Maxine for doing the honours.
Located on Penrith's High Street, our new store showcases new and preloved clothing, accessories and small homewares at affordable prices.
There is something for everybody from the treasure hunter, to the fashionista, to the budget-conscious shopper.
"We cater for different needs, tastes and budgets with a wide range of merchandise, from everyday necessities to unique preloved vintage treasures," Red Cross Shop Marketing Manager, Kate Dear says.
All of our 149 op shops - located in every Australian state and territory - rely on the generosity of the community to shop, donate and volunteer their time to help us raise money to fund our vital work.
Please stop by one of our stores with any quality items you have to donate. Every time you visit one of our shops you're helping us support people facing loneliness, isolation and disaster, both around Australia and further afield.
Make sure you ask for a loyalty card, which can be stamped every time you donate items or spend $10 or more in one purchase. When you reach ten transactions, you'll receive 25% off your next purchase.
Special thanks to our Red Cross ambassador and celebrity stylist Alex van Os for officially opening the store yesterday and sharing morning tea with our new staff, volunteers and customers.
Alex shared her love of sifting through treasures at Red Cross op shops to achieve a trifecta of benefits: finding something unique at a fraction of the price, reducing the amount of clothing heading to landfill, and contributing valuable funds to Red Cross' work vital in the community.
If you're a keen op shopper, you can find all of our store locations here.
