Where is your store?

We are located in downtown Rochester,  Charlotte Square, on the second floor of 89 Charlotte Street. We are upstairs from the The Factory Hairdressing Salon and next door to The Ugly Duck Coffee. 

WHat are your store hours?

Currently, we are open Fridays from 5 pm - 8 pm and Weekends from 11 am - 6 pm.

Why the Name Op Shop?

I went to school in the Village of Alfred, NY. Every Tuesday the church on Main Street (the only street with a stop light) would open during the afternoon and sell second hand. The shop was called the Op Shop, short for Opportunity. I like how it encapsulated the words Opportunity and co-op and Pop up. Nothing is better than some fun word play.

Why a Co-op?

The mentality of a membership and community aspect to a business seems like the antidote to a struggling small shop like ours on our own. When we band together and have a unique hub of vintage, people are excited to find all they’re looking for (and more!) in one place. 

When did you open?

We opened on New Years Eve day 2017 and what a great way that was to bring in the New Year!

DO you do Consignment?

Yes! Consignment inquiries can contact us here. We will ask for photos of some of the things you’re interested in consigning and if they are items that are currently selling at the shop, we’ll set up an appointment. Keep in mind we usually sell in-season, so winter items during cold weather, etc.  

Where Do you find your inventory?

Our inventory is unique! Made up of different vendors who collect and find vintage all on their own. This gives the shop a unique, all-across-the-board feel, where no style or era of vintage is off limits. There is an endless supply of choice finds at The Op Shop! 

How do I pop up?

IT'S EASY! Fill out the online vendor form and view our terms & conditions. You do not need to be a business owner to pop up, we have vendors from all different experiences and backgrounds (which makes it all the better!).
