Extended Trading Hours at Treasure Markets
You asked for it, now you got it - both the Dakabin and Caboolture Treasure Markets will extend their operating hours as part of a three month trial.
Spokesperson for Asset Construction & Maintenance Cr Adam Hain said the announcement was in response to overwhelming community demand.
“The Treasure markets have been incredibly popular and we keep hearing that people want to be able to shop here more than just the current Friday and Saturday openings,’” he said.
“So from next week, we’re going to start trading six days a week from 10am to 2pm Tuesday through Sunday, meaning the Dakabin and Caboolture Treasure Markets will only be closed on Mondays.”
The trial period starts Tuesday 18 September and ends Saturday 15 December, but will be continued if the demand is there.
Division 7 Councillor Denise Sims said the changes would make visiting the tip more convenient for local residents and businesses.
“We want people reusing and recycling as much as they can and this message is being embraced more and more in our community,” she said.
“With more options now to visit the Dakabin and Caboolture Treasure Markets, we hope to see more people coming along and seeing what trinkets they can pick up at a bargain.
“If you haven’t been to the Treasure Markets they are well worth checking out, you’ll be surprised by the range and quality and blown away by the prices.”
The treasure markets are a hugely popular council initiative that started 16 years ago.
In that time thousands of tonnes of donated and second-hand goods such as planks of timber, lounge chairs, kitchen sinks and bath tubs have been recycled.
Dakabin and Caboolture Treasure Markets will continue to accept donated items as per normal.
