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.


Due to Uncertainty of Current COVID 19 and movements of people through Skipton along the Glenelg Highway, from community with active cases, the difficult decision has been made by the “Op Shop” Committee to close the Store, until further notice.

We will let you know through SCN when we are reopening.

Please stay COVID’safe, Wear your masks,

Stay Healthy!!

Donations 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, assist in so many of the groups and organisations being able to access Grants funded to get so much achieved through the Community Shop.

Thank you so much everyone.
