Highlighting money that can be saved from a charitable Opportunity Shop might seem to be taking frugality to the extreme, but most would agree that a cent saved is a cent gained in our pocket, and in the case of Salvos Stores, that can be quite a bit.
Salvos Stores, I'm sure you will agree, serves well as a chain of second hand stores offering quality pre-loved goods with sales raising money for the mission of The Salvation Army.
From humble beginnings The Salvation Army has developed into a multi-million dollar recycling service, operating the largest international recycle network including retail stores, collection service and export recycle clothing service.
In recent years, prices for second hand goods found on larger chain Opportunity Shops such as Salvos Stores have increased quite substantially. Rather than question why Opportunity Shop prices are on the rise, it seems better to instead highlight ways to save a few more dollars when buying pre-loved in Salvos Stores:
