Salvos Family Super Store back and booming

The Salvos Family Super Store on Takalvan Street closed on 31st March due to COVID-19 restrictions, but, rather than having a rest, they used the time to repaint, restock and rejuvenate.

Salvos Family Super Store Manager Robyn De Daunton said it had been a busy time.

“We painted, cleaned and re-stocked and put in place the COVID-19 restrictions for hygiene and social distancing in preparation for when we could re-open,” Robyn said.

The store re-opened on 4th May and the first day was amazing, according to Robyn.

“The response on opening was very overwhelming and everyone was pleased to get their fix of op shopping.

“We sold out of furniture in the first week and we can’t keep blankets on the shelves.

“We are also in desperate need of white goods and bric a brac.”

Anyone wanting to donate can contact the store on 4151 5749.

“The only condition with pick ups is that it has to be left outside for us to pick up to protect our volunteers.”

Robyn thanked the public for returning to the Salvos Family Super Store and was full of gratitude for the volunteers.

“Huge thanks to my store volunteers for helping me get the store ready for opening and for being on hand since the opening, as it has been very hectic and extremely busy.”
