A NEW Vinnies shop is opening in Port Kennedy next month and the St Vincent de Paul Society is looking for volunteers.

Vinnies spokeswoman Joanne Hill said the new store would provide an exciting new shopping opportunity for the local community.

“We need volunteers to help out in store, assist with customer service, ring up sales through the register and merchandising,” she said.

“Our volunteers always have a great time and enjoy the friendly and supportive environment along with the opportunity to give back to the community by giving some of their time.

“Volunteers will enjoy working in a supportive environment and are trained in all areas of working in a retail environment, including register operation, customer service, sorting and pricing donations and merchandising.”

The shop is also keen to receive donations from the public and will readily accept second-hand clothing, furniture and household items.

The new shop is at 2/15 Saltaire Way, Port Kennedy. Call 9475 5499 or email volunteer@svdpwa.org.au.
