Okay, I said I wouldn’t review one of these Op Shop chain stores but this one took my fancy because of the layout and the staff.
With one of the best locations in Carnegie on the corner of Koornang and Neerim Road, this store is well organised and the quality of clothes are excellent. Unfortunately for someone like me as a size 14 struggled to find much in my size as the clothes are mostly donated by those much smaller than me. But there were still bargains to be had if you if you take the time.
Note that there are alot of clothes in this store. There are a quite a few books but little kids toys, kitchenware and linen. But it still has alot to offer and I’m sure this is a seasonal and changes over time.
