Hospice OpShop Mosgiel doubled the size of its retail
operation yesterday by opening a second store just a few doors
away on Gordon Rd.
Shop supervisor Tina Tunster said the shop had also changed
from using the Butterflies brand and was now calling both
shops Hospice OpShop Mosgiel.
The new shop would stock furniture, books, CDs and
bric-a-brac while the old store would stock second-hand
clothing, jewellery and other fashion-related items.
Mrs Tunster said they had already received lots of great
donations from the public but had room to stock more now.
More good quality furniture items would be welcome and would
help in the quest to find the $1.6 million that the hospice
needed each year from the public.
Opportunity shopping is a popular pastime in Mosgiel and the
shop was always busy with browsers or people on a particular
shopping mission, Mrs Tunster said.
