Tip-shop makeover

BALCATTA’S tip-shop has reopened after a month-long makeover and is now under the management of a social enterprise.

Workpower helps people with disabilities find employment, and CEO Lee Broomhall says the tip-shop is a great example of what can be achieved with a diverse and integrated workforce.

”I have no doubt customers who have frequented the Recycling Centre in the past will enjoy an improved shopper experience when they visit now,” Ms Broomhall said.

The shop floor is now more organised and items are marked with the price, there are more staff to help unload goods and there’s even a kiosk for a cuppa while treasure hunting.
