Salvos Op Shop – Nunawading

Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

This is an interesting Salvos Shop. It follows the usual formula of the Salvo’s chain but it does have a lovely warm feeling – perhaps it’s the lovely staff.

The displays were good like these shoes in colours with men’s and women’s separate. I always appreciate the effort that staff put in to make items look more appealing and attractive.

This section below is full of toys, books, linen, manchester and so on. It looks cluttered but in fact it’s quite organised.

Dresses are displayed on mannequins so you can see what they look like. This is a bonus as items hanging on a rack don’t portray how nice they can be.

There are plenty of books, clothes and kitchen ware but there isn’t a lot of furniture in this Salvos. I was particularly taken by some of the glassware – gorgeous.

OPENING HOURS: 9am – 5pm Monday to Saturday.  Sunday – closed.

LOCATION: 132-142 Springvale Road, Nunawading

PHONE: (03) 9878 4563

PARKING: There is plenty of parking out the front or down the side streets. Don’t park in the Shell Service Station – they get grumpy.

TRANSPORT: There is good public transport via bus or train to Nunawading. Check local timetables for trains here and for buses here. The walk from the station takes only a five minutes.

DISABLED ACCESS: Not great for people in wheelchairs. If you are on a walking frame or crutches it would be okay but is tight in some places.

DOGS: Just tie them up outside in the shade and please clean up any mess they make. Be mindful of them in hot weather.
