Pop in to op shop

The WASH House's Washed-Up Treasure op shops are extending their Thursday opening hours from 9am to 7pm.

"We will test the new extended hours over the daylight savings period starting on Thursday, February 13," said Washed-Up Treasure op shop manager Jennifer Szymkow.

"We hope the Thursday evening hours will encourage those who are at work during the day to pop in and discover all the affordable treasures we have, including clothing, shoes, books, furniture, linen, art, household goods and collectables."

The two Washed-Up Treasure op shops are at the Jersey Road entrance to the Emerton Village Shopping Centre. They are open from 9am to 4pm on other weekdays and from 9am to 2pm on Saturdays.
