The Community Shop has become a very important hub in the centre of the CBD. The Team of happy Volunteers is always ready to greet you with a welcoming smile and willing to be of assistance when you drop in to visit.

Welcome Back to Our Valued Customers

All at the "Skipton Op Shop" are happy to be able to welcome you back again after such a long break.

Being closed for so long hasn't all been bad, because it has given us a good opportunity to check our extensive range of stock, and rearrange our pre-loved goods, all in readiness for your return to our very popular shop, and are delighted to welcome you when you drop in to visit.

Please continue to wear your masks, and "stay COVID’safe and Healthy!!"

Donations are always most welcome and can be left in bins provided at the rear of the store .

Skipton Community Shop

The "Op Shop" has become an extremely busy focus of the local Town Centre.

With "well-stocked" shelves and clothing racks, so much has been achieved by the small but hard working group of individuals, (some we see, and others unseen); in a comparatively short time frame, through generous community contributions.

Fully staffed and administered by friendly community volunteers, all proceeds from the sales of new and used items through the shop, are returned to the community, with the funds raised assisting many local organisations and groups to complete major projects.  

Generous donations by various benefactors also assist the Committee of the Op Shop to enable many of the Community Groups and Organisations to access Grants funding to achieve proceeds for projects, through the Community Shop.

Thank you so much everyone.


The Volunteers at Skipton Community Shop were recognised for their wonderful contribution to the Skipton Community when they received an invitation to meet Dan Tehan MP at the Australian Government Volunteer Awards 2019.
