Louth Shop Reopens
Published on 18 August 2020 02:45 PM
Welcome back to our charity shop in Louth.
Our shop at 103 Eastgate in Louth has reopened, so now is definitely the time to shop for great quality bargains and contribute towards our work supporting older people across the area.
The shop has been deep-cleaned, risk assessments carried out, a till screen has been erected with card-only payments, and hand sanitiser stations are in place. With only five people allowed in at any one time, the changing rooms are also closed and refunds are only allowed on production of the receipt and payment card.
Donations are also being accepted, with a donation cage directly inside the door on the right, where people are asked to put their items - phoning the shop on 01507 609642 will help to ensure that there is sufficient space before dropping items off. All donations are then stored in a safe area for 72 hours before being deep cleaned and put out for sale.
Shops Area Manager for Age UK Lindsey Sarah Roberts said: “We are delighted to be welcoming back our customers. We have been working hard to replenish the shop with some fabulous new items – all out of season stock has been removed, rails, shelving and display areas have been refreshed and we are now moving full steam ahead.
“We have plentiful stocks of pre-loved items all desperate for new homes - there are lots of unusual and collectable pieces and also many bargains to be had,” added Sarah.
For shop manager, Julie Staniforth, the reopening marks a return to work from furlough and she is delighted to be welcoming customers back to the shop, which has a first floor packed with some fantastic ‘vintage’ bargains and a ground floor full of clothing, furniture items and bric-a-brac.
“It’s good to be back and yes we have some great bargains, all fantastic quality,” said Julie.
The Louth shop joins those in Market Rasen, Brigg, Horncastle, Spilsby and Woodhall Spa which have already reopened, with Coningsby welcoming customers back from Monday August 24.
