Renovation reveal

Outside of Vinnies' Queanbeyan op shop.
 Vinnies' Queanbeyan shop reopened this morning after its weekend renovation, and I Op was there to see what was new.

 We were given a tour of the changes by Queanbeyan Centre Manager Aaron McNeil, who had dressed up for the occasion, in a tail coat*.

Aaron's background as part of the Melbourne IKEA management team informed the redesign of the shop. 'Not only can we fit in 40% more stock than we used to be able to with the old design, which is great for our shoppers' he told us, 'but we now have the ability to rearrange the shop quickly to reflect stock levels and shopping trends'.

There are still a few finishing touches which need to be added, like signage and some displays, plus Aaron is hoping to have the shop repainted sometime soon.

But the shop is definitely lighter, brighter and easier to navigate.
