We run 153 shops across Queensland which provide a valuable community service and have ample stock. While we plan to keep the shops open while staff are available and the health authorities say it is appropriate, our shops may change their hours depending on available staff and advice from state and federal health authorities.
The health of our staff, volunteers and the community is our top priority and we absolutely support our staff and volunteers in the decisions they make about their own health and that of their families.
Following government directives around social distancing and considering the health and safety of its people, Vinnies has reluctantly closed its 153 Queensland shops from Monday 30 March for a four-week period due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We would like to stress that Vinnies shops are still a safe place and we have plenty of high-quality stock already in our shops that are available for purchase.
