Cranbourne Senior Citizens Opportunity shop

I came across this article in the Koo Wee Rup Sun of November 7, 1973 and was intrigued by the head line 'New shop for elderlies' and turns out it wasn't a shop where you can buy yourself a new Grandma or Grandpa - it was the Cranbourne 'Elderlie' Citizens new Opportunity Shop, in the heart of Cranbourne's shopping centre.  It had just been officially opened by Cr Ern Marriott. Before the opening a band of volunteer workers had spent two weeks restoring the premises. Led by Mr. Tony Nyhuis, they did a fine job to make the premises much more attractive for business.

I don't know  the exact location of the building in High Street in Cranbourne, if you know then we would love to hear from you.

We also have this photograph in our collection, I didn't have a date for it, so this article was helpful in dating it.
