“The site offered a rare opportunity, being one of the only properties within the inner southern fringe of the Brisbane CBD that could cater for a large format retailer,” Mr Macgregor said.
Mr McSweeney added: “The store boasts large frontage onto Montague Road and is situated in the heart of West End’s residential development area.”
The location benefits from a dense surrounding population – approximately 53,400 people living within a two-kilometre radius and approximately 89,000 within a three-kilometre radius (according to the 2016 census data).
Vinnies’ Brisbane Retail Operations Manager Renzo Salvetti commented: “We are really excited about opening our new Vinnies shop in West End, as the proceeds will go directly to supporting the local community in a range of different areas such as financial assistance, disaster relief, aged and disability care, youth work and much more.
“Vinnies supported 43,046 Queenslanders in need in 2018 and this new shop has the goal of enabling us to help even more local people in Brisbane’s south moving forward.”
