THE Hope Care Bargain Centre (formerly the Central West Care Bargain Centre) is undergoing a renovation and is ready to emerge bigger and brighter.
The centre, in operation since 2000, offers help to those in need, as well as selling an extensive range of pre-loved goods.
The centre closed its doors on Monday for a three-day renovation and will reopen tomorrow.
Hope Care business operations manager Elliot Redwin said the shop will be morecustomer-friendly following the renovations.
“It’s time for a bit of a freshen up to go with our new name,” he said.
The bargain centre and Junktion Community Recycling are run by Hope Care, which was previously known as Central West Care.
The centre is being painted, restructured and new lines are being brought in to boost the range of available stock.
“We’ll be rearranging things and have more of a focus that people can drop stuff off here,” Mr Redwin said.
“It’s a bit of a facelift.”
Centre manager Heather White said she was looking forward to showing off the new store when it reopens.
Proceeds from all goods sold at either store go back into the community through a number of charity initiatives.
Mr Redwin said Hope Care assists around 1300 people annually.
Food parcels to the value of $375,000 have been distributed and more than 3500 people have been given financial assistance for their energy bills to a total value of around $1.1 million.
Mr Redwin said he estimates around 200 tonnes of rubbish have been diverted away from landfill each year thanks to the two stores.
Hope Care currently maintains more than 1500 properties through its Home Maintenance Service.
Furniture and homewares have been donated to 4240 people in need.
