The RSPCA in Victoria has 18 opportunity shops that brim over with treasure. All stores are operated solely by teams of dedicated volunteers. All funds that are raised go towards supporting the work of the RSPCA.
If you’re interested in volunteering then checkout the website link below. They are always on the lookout for dedicated and caring staff.
This Op Shop is currently not taking any further items as noted with the sign on the door but people were still rocking up with bags of Christmas gifts they didn’t want.
There are other RSPCA stores and they are looking for good quality items. They cannot accept mattresses, pillows, worn underwear, opened toiletries, damaged items (such as chipped glassware and broken furniture). If you have larger furniture items call the store and discuss delivery.
OPENING HOURS: 10 am – 4 pm Monday to Friday. 10 am – 1.30 pm Saturday. Sunday – closed.
PHONE: (03) 9808 2641
PARKING: There is plenty of parking at the rear of the complex with generous time allowances.
TRANSPORT: There is a tram stop out the front and you can find tram timetables here.
DISABLED ACCESS: Good disabled access out the front with one small step into the store. Wheelchair friendly but would be very tight.
ENTRANCE FEE: No fee.
DOGS: Just tie them up outside in the shade and please clean up any mess they make. Be mindful of them in hot weather.
TOILET FACILITIES: I couldn’t see any obvious toilets but I’m sure there would be some where the supermarkets are. About 1km up the road is a large shopping complex where there are toilets.
