Recycle-SymbolOp Shop week is on its way to Bacchus Marsh to help encourage locals to shop at their local op shops or to donate items.

Red Cross, Salvos Stores and Vinnies are just some of the charity op shops involved, but no doubt everyone knows of some other fantastic local op shops that deserve our support.

Op shops provide the community with a great way to recycle and find original and antique items that can’t be found elsewhere.

A lot of people prefer to buy new items, but you’d be surprised at the quality of the items found in op shops and the bargains that can be found too!

Of course, op shops are always on the lookout for new items so to help out during Op Shop Week you might like to spring clean your home and donate any items you no longer want or need, as long as they are still in good condition.

Op Shop Week officially takes place from August 23-30, 2015. To learn more about op shopping and how you can get involved visit

Feel free to leave a comment and share your favourite op shops in the Bacchus Marsh area too, because we’d love to help support op shops in the community.

Do you donate to op-shops in Bacchus Marsh? Or do you regularly shop in them?
