BARGAIN-hunters with a penchant for trawling second-hand stores and op shops for pre-loved gems will be spoilt for choice with the opening of a new Red Cross store in Rosny Park.
Australian Red Cross head of retail Richard Wood said Red Cross was excited to extend its retail presence into Hobart’s eastern suburbs.
“The shop will be a great place to pick up a unique variety of products that appeal to the fashionista and budget-conscious shoppers alike,” he said.
“We cater for different needs, tastes and budgets with a wide range of merchandise, from everyday necessities to unique vintage treasures.”
Proceeds from the sale of donated clothing, homewares and accessories, both new and recycled, help fund vital Red Cross work in Australian communities and further afield.
Mr Wood said by shopping or donating at the Rosny Park Red Cross Op Shop you will be turning a jumper into a phone call for an elderly person living alone, jeans into a hot meal for a young homeless person or a box of books into clean drinking water for a community living in poverty.
The new store also provides volunteer opportunities for those looking to lend a hand.
Volunteers can assist in areas ranging from customer service and sales through to visual merchandising and sorting donations.
To sign up, call into the store at Shop 1, 2 Bayfield Street, or register your interest online at www.redcross.org.au/shopvolunteer
