“The Ashy” Op Shop

Located at 285B High St, Ashburton (next to Ashburton Station), “The Ashy” Op Shop sells donated clothing, accessories, homewares and furniture. Funds raised go towards the everyday work of Samarinda as a community not-for-profit organisation. Locals and seasoned op shoppers alike can browse, buy, volunteer or donate; with all proceeds going directly towards helping Samarinda in supporting our locals as they age and to assist them in remaining connected to their community.

Some great reasons to visit “The Ashy” Op Shop

  • Retro fashion: you’ll find vintage clothing and designer brands
  • Great bargains: particularly if you’re creative and on a budget
  • Help the local community: all proceeds go directly towards our community and residential service programmes
  • Environmentally friendly: recycling pre-loved goods reduces landfill and CO2 emissions
  • Great variety: from the refreshingly bizarre to the tastelessly mundane
  • High turnover: new stock arrives daily but hurry in, great buys don’t hang around

What can I donate?

Our op shop accepts quality clothing donations, accessories, books and bric-a-brac, homewares and furniture. If it’s good enough quality to give to a friend, then it’s something we’d love.

(We don’t accept mattresses, electrical goods or stained/damaged clothing.)

It’s easy to donate

Simply drop your pre-loved donations at our op shop or donation bins. See below for store location and hours of operation.

  • Do not leave goods – if they don’t fit in our donation bin, they may get weather damaged
  • If an item is stained, torn or broken, we can’t accept it
  • If an item is breakable/fragile, please wrap before donating

If you want to donate some quality items that are too big to drop off, please call us to arrange our free collection service.
