The spacious new location will become Vinnies’ new hub in Townsville after they recently vacated their shop in Garbutt for the West End location.

Townsville executive officer Sharon Nicholson said the new shop would have “absolutely everything.”

“There’s bridal, formal and high-end fashion along with the regular ladies’ and men’s sections,” she said.

“There’s a book section, CD and DVDs, bric-a-brac and collectables. There’s new furniture plus second-hand furniture, which is something we haven’t carried before. We haven’t had the space until now.”
