Countdown on for new Lifeline store
RIVERLINK'S newest store will allow people to "shop with a conscience," according to Lifeline business manager Colin Hannigan.
Mr Hannigan is proud to present the charity's newest opportunity shop, which is expected to open mid-November.
"It is very close to opening, we just have to finish the paperwork," he said.
"Riverlink will give us an opportunity to cater to a group of people who wouldn't normally go to a Lifeline store.
"It's a public transport hub and we expect to attract a lot of foot traffic there."
Mr Hannigan said the Lifeline superstore at Jacaranda St, East Ipswich, was loved by many seasoned op-shoppers but didn't attract much foot traffic.
"Since we closed the Emporium in the Top of Town [May 2010] we've missed having that sort of presence," he said.
Lifeline will also open a Yamanto store before Christmas, Mr Hannigan revealed.
Lifeline shops in the region currently number six, with superstores at Goodna, East Ipswich, Gatton, Yamanto and Fernvale, and a Raceview shop.
"The Riverlink store will have top quality clothing, handbags, shoes, books and more, but it won't stock furniture," Mr Hannigan said.
"At Lifeline these days it's quite likely shoppers will be able to find a pair of RM Williams jeans or a Table Eight dress, and if they buy that dress they should get change from $20."
