Salvos Stores will again be partnering with the National Association of Charitable Recycling Organisations (NACRO) in celebrating the third annual National Op Shop Week to be held from the 24th to the 31st of August. National Op Shop Week is a joint initiative of NACRO and DoSomething! The week seeks to raise awareness of the importance of supporting op shops in our community.
For National Op Shop Week Salvos Stores are bringing the store to you through the creation of their ‘Pop Up Op Shop’. A converted van, powered by eco-friendly solar panels, transforms into a funky fashion store which will be popping up at Martin Place on Monday 25th August from 7.30am to 3.30pm. And as shopping is such hungry work, Salvos Stores will be providing free bacon & egg rolls for everyone between 7.30am – 8.30am! A fashion show will also be staged at lunch time to showcase the vintage and current recycled fashion trends found at local Salvos Stores, perfect for the fashion savvy, budget conscious consumer.
By taking part in National Op Shop Week, and shopping and donating at your community Salvos Store you are supporting the mission and programs of The Salvation Army. Salvos Stores use all their proceeds to fund vital work in the community on a weekly basis.
