National Op Shop Week was held from 27 August to 2 September this year and celebrated shopping while supporting the social and environmental benefits of reducing, reusing and recycling.

By shopping at Vinnies you are not only reducing your carbon footprint, but also supporting Vinnies various programs to assist people in need in your local community.

This year National Op Shop Week was launched at the Vinnies Waverley Shop at 255 Bronte Road on Sunday 27 August. Jon Dee, Managing Director of Do Something and founder of National Op Shop Week launched the event with Joe Hildebrand and Rae Johnston.

During National Op Shop Week people were asked to help mark the event by visiting their local op shops and sharing their finds using #NationalOpShopWeek.
