New location for Riverside Bargains
RIVERSIDE Bargains Prince Street are moving to the old Ford building on Saturday with help from members of the Riverside Church.
"We saw potential," Martin Lucas from Riverside Bargains said about the Ford building located on Fitzroy Street.
With a need for more space, Mr Lucas said the move from a 200 square meter building to the two thousand square metre building building was a necessity.
"We're moving because we have the demand, too much stock, and we want to service more people," Mr Lucas said.
With the new space, Riverside Bargains will be able to process a lot of the donations they receive on site.
The clothes donated are separated by items they can sell themselves, or to other companies.
"Some clothes we cup up into rags to on sell," Mr Lucas said.
Mr Lucas said they have cleaned up the building and given it a fresh coat of paint and the owners are happy with the final product.
"We've been working on it since late January," he said.
Riverside Bargains is a second hand store that is all about recycling, and turning old and broken items into working and useful goods.
"We have demand for supplying good quality second hand furniture," Mr Lucas said.
The new shop is set to open on Monday, April 11 after a weekend of heavy lifting.
