Bargain hunt: cheap shops to reopen after COVID-19 closure

GLADSTONE residents can find some great bargains again, with tip shops reopening after they were forced to close due to COVID-19.

Gladstone Transfer Station and Benaraby Landfill Tip Top Shops will reopen this Saturday, July 11.

Mayor Matt Burnett confirmed the news earlier this week.

"On Saturday at the butcher shop a young Gladstone local asked me "when are you going to open the dump shop," Cr Burnett said via a Facebook post.

"I am pleased to advise that the Tip Top Shops will reopen this Saturday."

Social distancing rules apply.

Visitors are asked to adhere to social distancing guidelines, and to not attend these facilities if they have cold or flu-like symptoms, have been overseas or in a known COVID-19 hotspot in the last 14 days, or have been in contact with someone who has.

Cash and card payments will be accepted.
