Wozzles Wearhouse is a Ballarat institution when it comes to op-shops. Operating for 26 years, we provide high quality and affordable clothing and homewares to the people of Ballarat. By supporting us, you’re supporting kids and families in need.

Wozzles Wearhouse quickly expanded after the success of its first store in Grenville Street which opened in May 1991. Today, we have four retail outlets across Ballarat which are operated by loyal volunteers from the community. A small team of staff at the operations centre process the donations Wozzles Wearhouse receives through the iconic green bins. The pre-loved clothing and goods are then distributed to the retail outlets and sold to the Ballarat community at affordable prices.

Over the last 26 years Wozzles Wearhouse has generated more than $10 million in sales of pre-loved clothing and goods, with all surplus funds going directly to programs run by CAFS that assists many children and families in need. When you donate or shop at Wozzles Wearhouse, your money is contributing to helping others within the local community.

Wozzles delivered record sales of over $670,000 in 2016–17. Our army of volunteers, now exceeding 65, continues to be the backbone of our retail outlets and are vital to enabling funds to be directed to programs run by CAFS.

“Wozzles-On-Wheels” is our latest initiative and involves branded wheelie bins ‘rolling’ into local businesses, schools, community and sporting groups to collect pre-loved clothing and goods. If you are interested in having a “Wozzles-On-Wheels” bin please contact us.  We will arrange delivery and pick-up making it a quick and easy way to support Wozzles and CAFS.
