Well after a few months of nominations and voting I can am thrilled to announce we have a winner in the Australia’s best Op Shop competition.

I have loved reading through all the nominations hearing about how fantastic you think some of your local op shops are across Australia.

I have to point out how many wonderful things were said by so many about the volunteers and staff who make the op shops what they are.  You are appreciated by so many of your supporters!
