School Uniform Shop - New Arrangements

17th September 2021

Friday, 17 September 2021

Dear Parents


I write to advise that we have decided to utilize the extensive services of The School Locker, based at Domain Central, and to close our School Uniform Shop, located at the Annandale Campus. This decision has been based on parent feedback and in consideration of the additional services provided by The School Locker.

We are confident that the many benefits and conveniences this new arrangement offers will be appreciated by our parent community.

As of Monday, 4 October, all Townsville Grammar School uniforms, as well as a range of other school supplies and equipment, will be available from The School Locker.

The benefits of this new service include:
▪ Trading seven days a week, including school holidays:
─ Monday to Friday - 8:30am-5:00pm
─ Saturday - 9:00am - 4:00pm
─ Sunday - 10:00am - 4:00pm

▪ Convenient location at Domain, central to all three Campuses.

▪ Full range of TGS uniforms, as well as other school supplies including shoes, sports equipment, music supplies, stationery and technology.

▪ Online ordering available.

▪ Online orders for boarding students delivered to the School.

Secondhand Uniforms – Fire Sale, Week 1 Term 4
Due to this move, our secondhand uniform sales service will cease and we recommend that parents consider using a digital shopfront such as Facebook marketplace as an alternative.

We will be holding a fire sale in Week 1 of Term 4, to clear our current second-hand uniform and sample stock. This will be available at the TGS Annandale location for in person purchases only. Online ordering has now ceased through our Shop, and telephone purchases will not be possible.

The sale will be held on the following mornings:
▪ Thursday, 7 October, 7:30am – 9:30am
▪ Friday, 8 October, 7:30am – 9:30am

Following this sale, parents who own any of the remaining second-hand stock will be contacted by Brenda to come and collect in Week 2 of Term 4.

We will be moving our giftware stock to the North Ward Campus where it will be available for sale.

Our School Shop has been operating at the Annandale Campus for more than 10 years and, whilst this has been a fantastic service, we are unable to provide the extended trading hours and additional services to meet our growing community’s needs across three Campuses.

I wish to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Mrs Brenda Tsakissiris for her outstanding service in managing the School Shop and providing a personal level of service for our parents for last 10 years. We wish Brenda all the best in her family’s new business enterprise.

We trust you will appreciate the extended services that School Locker provides.

Yours sincerely,
Timothy J. Kelly
