Op Shop Map of Great Southern WA

A generous community member, John Mac, has just dropped off an updated version of his Op Shop Map of Albany, Denmark and Mt Barker. He’s carefully collated times and locations of all known op shops in our three towns, as well as noting which shops require cash for purchases.

Check out this valuable resource to plan your next op shop crawl!

Op shopping keeps useful stuff out of landfill and reduces demand on raw resources, as well as supporting charitable enterprises.

This map was created by a volunteer and details may change. To avoid disappointment, please check by ringing the intended store before you drive a long distance.
