Salvation Army Family Store 711 Pollen Street, Fernside, North Island, New Zealand

Visiting this store is like going back in time! This large and busy store has a great selection of pre-loved men's and women's clothes. While you do have to ferret around a bit to find the really good pieces, you almost always come away with a fantastic bargain. There is new stock coming in all the time so it's well worth going in for a look every so often. The racks are well set out and everything is easy to find according to what you're looking for. I particularly like the 'Out of the Ordinary' rack where you can find all sorts of interesting garments and ballgowns! The ladies in the store are so kind and helpful too. They also have quite a large selection of shoes, the only thing they don't have much of is children's clothing.

The prices are always super low! I pay an average of $4 per garment and often you can walk in to find they are having a 50% off day.
