Three shops will re-open on Monday 6th July
Our St Giles Street, Kingsthorpe and Kettering shops will re-open with social distancing measures in place on Monday 6th July. The three shops will open 30 minutes later and close 30 minutes earlier than usual. This will enable us to carry out extra cleaning and other precautionary measures to ensure the safety of our customers, staff and volunteers. All other other shops are closed until further notice.
Special arrangements during the coronavirus pandemic
We warmly welcome your donations of good quality clothes, books, bric-a-brac and household items. You will be able to drop off your items outside normal opening times:
- St Giles Street, Northampton can accept donations 9am - 9:30am and 4 - 4.30pm.
- Stamford Road, Kettering can accept donations 9am - 9.30am and 3.30 – 4pm.
This is to ensure donations are received when the shops are closed to the public and there are no customers on the premises.
- Alexandra Terrace, Kingsthorpe can accept donations at any time during opening hours if they are dropped off at the back of the building.
All donations will go into quarantine before they are handled and will be steam cleaned/sanitised before being sold. Please talk to a member of our team at the shop so that they can let you know how to drop off your goods safely.
Whilst our shops are closed please do not take donations to them and do not leave any bags or items outside the shops. We are not able to accept donations at the Venton Centre in Northampton or our Billing Road offices at the moment.
Thank you for supporting our shops
Our shops are a vital source of income to the charity and we are doing our best to re-open them. Please remember that we have to follow government guidance on social distancing and put in place the necessary steps to keep our staff, volunteers and customers safe when re-opening a shop. A large proportion of our volunteers are over 70 or may be at high risk of coronavirus and have been advised to shield until the end of June or longer. Thank you for your understanding and support.
Volunteering at our shops
Our shops are friendly places where volunteers sort donations, keep the shop floor tidy and serve customers. If you can spare a morning or an afternoon on a regular basis to volunteer in one of our shops we'd love to hear from you. Please get in touch.
