Retro Rack, Weston

Cooleman Court has almost completed its renovation. One of the shops that temporarily closed was the little op-shop on the mezzanine called Retro Rack.

It's back, but not in the shopping centre itself. The new Retro Rack is adjacent to Cooleman Court on Brierley street, in between the NAB and Flight Centre. It is roughly opposite The Garden Nursery. It's on the same side of Cooleman Court and a couple of hundred metres from Salvos.

Hours are 9.30-5.00 M-F and 10-2.00 on Saturday.

It's still a small shop, but well organised and clean. The stock is of reasonable quality. Prices - not as dear as Vinnies, about $5 for a blouse and they had 7 balls of Patons Totem for $10 which is not too bad and certainly not as expensive as Vinnies.

The men's shirt rack is too high to comfortably reach but if you ask they'll lend you their hook to take items down.

The shop only accepts cash - no EFTPOS or credit cards.

It's certainly worth a look and fits in nicely with a Saturday morning run to Salvos at Weston and the little Anglican op-shop at Chapman shops (and then it's not so far to Salvos and Vinnies in Phillip).
