Op-shop to opt out at half price

IT'S a sell-out at Coffs Harbour's Royal Far West Op-shop.

The charity outlet, located in a little old timber cottage at 1 Murdoch Street, has been a favourite with op-shoppers for 19 years, but is about to relocate so almost everything on the premises, both in the shop and bargain shed, is on sale for half price.

The shop is open from 9am to 4pm on weekdays and from 9am to noon on Saturdays until December 20, when it will close for good.

It will re-open in new premises on the corner of Moonee Street and West High Street in early January.

Royal Far West Children's Health Scheme's Coffs Harbour branch secretary Jill Gill said Far West owned the Murdoch St shop and she understood the charity's Sydney management had decided to sell the site.

The Coffs Harbour branch has been raising money to supply sick country children with free special healthcare in Sydney for almost 60 years.

Mrs Gill said they were still accepting donations.

“The new shop will contain second-hand clothing and footwear, school uniforms, books, kitchen and household wares, toys, recycled wool, home decorations and craft items as well as bric-a-brac and tagged electrical items,” Mrs Gill said.

“We will sell all goods that are clean and in good condition.

“More volunteers will be required to assist next year so if you would like to work with a fun group of men and women for just three and a half hours each week, please contact the shop manager on 6651 6747 or 6651 2128.”
