Lifeline Dalby to resume regular business hours

IT WILL be business as usual for all Lifeline stores in the Darling Downs as of this morning when regular business hours will resume.

Lifeline Darling Downs temporarily ceased trade in its “Op Shops” due to the onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic and reopened its network of retail stores with reduced hours and trading days.

Lifeline Darling Downs CEO Derek Tuffield said it was a relief to resume with regular operating hours, and was a sign that things were returning back to normal across the board.

“We are now delighted to announce that we are able to resume normal trading hours at all our retail stores and at our two Containers for Change recycling depots in Toowoomba and Dalby,” he said.

“This will allow our customers increased flexibility to shop at a time convenient to them including Saturdays,” he said.

Customers will be required to adhere to current social distancing rules and hand sanitiser will be available in-store. EFTPOS continues to be the preferred payment method.

“Having our retail stores back to full trading hours also increases our ability to support our suicide prevention and various community focused services as the profits from the stores provide much needed operational funds,” Mr Tuffield said.
