The Lockyer Valley township of Laidley is bouncing back.
The Second Chance Opp Shop is recovering from the devastation caused by floodwaters destroying 99% of stock and fittings. This community based retail outlet is well supported by local volunteers who work tirelessly to provide a well stocked shop with clothing, bedding and household items. A range of shoes, books, furniture and children’s toys also make up the variety of items available to bargain shoppers. The proceeds from the shop are ploughed back into the local community for local services and agencies.
The support from the community by buying local is much appreciated by the management. Additionally the support by the many generous donors is valued. Following the flooding, the quantity of donations was so enormous that temporary warehousing of the many items was found at the Laidley Showgrounds. The Shop is only able to operate from the reduced size section while repairs are being organised to the rest of the establishment.
It is now necessary to hold a Giant Warehouse Clearance Sale to empty the warehouse because the volume of items is too much for the Shop to process. The Clearance Sale is being held at the Laidley Show grounds on Saturday April 9th from 8am to 2pm. The bargains include “buy one, get one free” bags of clothes.
