Comment on Vinnies in Alice barely surviving by Love Alice.

I love to support our local op shops through shopping there and donating goods for sale.
Vinnies has been on a sharp decline for a while now.
Ridiculous pricing means goods stay on the shelves.
The other day I spotted candles that sell for $1 new at Kmart priced at $5.
I haven’t bought anything on my last six visits to the store.
Melissa and Ruth were great managers, very friendly and dedicated.
Now I know more on why Ruth left I will not be visiting this store again.
Such a pity a well needed service is being run so badly and into the ground.
Shame on you Vinnies … hardly living up to the ethos of St Vincent De Paul whose name you use.
