The Garratt St Centre Op Shop

Community service

The Op Shop opened on 17 June 2010 and operated at the premises of the Tuggeranong Baptist Church, 33 Jenke Cct, Kambah until it was completely destroyed by fire on 17 June 2017 under the name of Seek'n'Find Op Shop.

The volunteers, under the leadership of Sue Massen, immediately began to assemble a new stock of goods to be ready when the shop re-opened in temporary premises at the Wanniassa Shopping Centre in Sangster Place in October 2018. Here old and new connections were made with people who came to donate, to chat, to browse and to buy.

The shop moved to the Garratt St Centre in October 2019 when the premises was purchased by Tuggeranong Baptist Church.

The efforts of the Op Shop contribute to the church's Community of Givers fund that provides support for financial needs, especially to sole parents.

The shop's current opening hours are 9:30 am to 2:00 pm, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

If you wish to donate, you will need to contact Sue to make a suitable time.
