Mission Op Shop – Chapel Street

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

The Mission Op Shop was a little hectic when I visited, with staff and donations in abundance, there is potential for this opportunity shop to be quite lovely once it settles into its groove.  The front of the store is brimming with men’s and women’s clothing whilst out the back you will find books, CDs, games, records, shoes, accessories and sporting equipment – there was even a set of retro golf clubs!  The slightly disorderly stock makes for good rummaging and there are plenty of staff around to assist with any queries you might have.  The Mission is currently recruiting volunteers, offering training and a supportive work environment for people overcoming mental illness.  Donations are welcome and all proceeds from the store go towards supporting The Mission.
