Communities at Work Best Dressed Store - Want to Volunteer?

Op Shop in Tuggeranong

Communities at Work’s Best Dressed Store Op Shop in South.Point Shopping Centre, Tuggeranong is temporarily closed and has been relocated to Manuku for the short term while we wait for a new shop space at South.Point.

Why buy clothing at the Best Dressed Store?

“Around fifteen per cent of the Best Dressed Store’s stock is brand new. Why pay $300 for a high-quality outfit when you can get it for $30?”, says Trevor, Best Dressed Store Manager. 

Money from all purchases made at the store is used to create sustainable and ongoing funding to help vulnerable clients through the Communities at Work Clothing Program, Community Pantries, and other support services provided to struggling individuals and families

Interested in volunteering?

We want you! We’re looking for more volunteers so we can open the shop longer. If you have a few spare hours and are looking for something meaningful to do, then please contact us. We’d love to hear from you! Our volunteers join us because they like the idea of giving back to their community, or meeting new people and making new friends, or simply because it gives them something fun and useful to do in their spare time.
Did you know that the shop plays an important role in our community work as the shop income is used to purchase pallets of food for our community pantries. So more volunteers = longer shop hours = more income = more people helped.

Where do the clothes come from?

The stock in the store is entirely comprised of donated items from members of the Canberra community. As one of the few upmarket op shops in Canberra, we pride ourselves on maintaining a high standard of quality and product and even stock a wide range of fashion labels.
