In October 2016, Be Uplifted opened the doors of its first Op Shop at 5/611 Robinson Rd in Aspley. Then in July 2017, we followed this with our second Op Shop on 194 Zillmere Rd Zillmere.
Both of our breast cancer Op Shops are packed full of bric-a-brac, toys, books, clothing, household items and handmade crafts priced at a next to nothing and ready for new owners.
An Op Shop is the name given to retail shops run by charities to raise money for their cause. In the case of Be Uplifted Inc, our two Op Shops use every single cent of revenue to help patients with breast cancer.
Here are just five great reasons you should come along and check out what is in stock at the Be Uplifted Inc’s Op Shops!
