The action-packed opening, from 9am to 12noon will be held at the new store (right next to the old one) at 105 Brisbane Road, and will include hot dogs, balloons, face painting and a massive 30% off all stock.
Not only that but Bloomhill patron, former Olympian and cancer survivor Raelene Boyle AM MBE, will carry out the official opening of the new shop, which is twice as big as the old one, at 10am.
The Mooloolaba Op Shop is one of seven Bloomhill Cancer Help runs on the Coast and is a vital fundraiser for its work helping people with cancer and their families throughout the Sunshine Coast. The other stores are located at Maroochydore, Caloundra, Noosaville, Nambour, Buderim and Kunda Park.
Bloomhill is operated by a dedicated team of professional staff and therapists who are assisted by a large number of volunteers. It relies on the generosity of the public and funds generated by its Op Shops to enable them to offer practical as well as emotional support for people with cancer and their loved ones. This help includes complementary therapies, counselling, support groups and transport.
“The launch is an opportunity for family and friends to get together and witness the new store opening, as well as have some fun together,” Bloomhill Committee Vice President, Jenny Carroll said.
“Bloomhill relies heavily on support from the local community so we also want to say thank you to everyone who has supported us.”
“It is also a pleasure to have our very supportive patron Raelene Boyle opening the new shop,” Jenny said.
Jenny said all the Bloomhill shops including Mooloolaba were always in need of new stock, particularly homewares and bric-a-brac.
“If anyone has any items they no longer need or want, we would be very grateful to receive them, so in addition to joining us for the re-opening, we are urging people to check out their cupboards and garage and donate any items they no longer need or want,” she said.
“Donated items can be dropped off at any of the shops during opening hours or you can call 5448 6858 to organise free collection.”
The massive 30% off sale will run all week from Friday 30 October.
“We look forward to seeing everyone at the opening on Saturday 31 October.”
