Op Shops with a difference

Described by Adelaide radio legend Peter Goers as "the best in SA", our boutique Elcies Op Shops have earned a reputation for quality brands and second-to-none service. Our Elcies stores are located on the popular shopping strip of The Parade, Norwood, in the coastal hub of Semaphore and in Tanunda, in the beautiful Barossa Valley.


Volunteer with Elcies

We are looking for volunteers! Our Elcies Op Shops welcome volunteers from all walks of life.

There are currently a number of volunteer shifts available in all of our stores, as well as behind the scenes in our Blair Athol Distribution Centre.

If you have a passion for fashion and helping your community, find out more about these volunteer vacancies here. We would love to have you join our team!

Committed to Sustainability

Lutheran Care opened its first Elcies shop on The Parade, Norwood, in October 2019. Following this success, we opened Elcies Barossa in Tanunda on 1 October 2020. Semaphore joined the family in January 2023.

These gorgeous shops stock a fantastic selection of good-quality, second hand items, including clothing, handbags, shoes, purses, novels, jewellery, furniture and homewares.

We give people’s good quality preloved wares another chance at life, rescuing items that could have otherwise ended up in landfill. Our sorters have already done the hard work for customers, with sought-after brands and collectable items handpicked to please our discerning shoppers.

The Elcies brand was created to enable Lutheran Care to help more people in need, with proceeds from the sales of donated items going towards our programs for people experiencing crisis, hardship, homelessness and disadvantage, including Emergency Relief.

We honour your donation by seeking the best price we can for it, as every dollar benefits Lutheran Care clients. Our customers can be happy they can pick up a quality, unique item much cheaper than what they would have had to pay new, and feeling good that their spend helps make a difference to people in need.

If you would like to make a donation, you can do this at 43-45 The Parade, Norwood, 231 Military Road, Semaphore, 309 Prospect Road, Blair Athol, or Shop 4, 46 Murray Street, Tanunda. Please see opening times and contact details below.
