Northern Ireland Hospice safely reopens charity shops

After a four-month period of lockdown, Northern Ireland Hospice is delighted to announce that all of its charity shops have now safely reopened.

Due to the generosity of the public, all shops are now packed with incredible buys, including clothing, an impressive range of footwear, fashion accessories, and stylish household accessories.

All Hospice Shops have adapted new safety guidelines in store, including a queuing system, hygiene stations, perspex till screens, contactless payment where possible, and have provided all staff and volunteers with PPE equipment.

Neil Fowler, Head of Retail at Northern Ireland Hospice, said:

“We are delighted to have reopened and doing what we love best – welcoming our incredible customers back and helping raise vital funds for Hospice.

During lockdown, our team worked hard in preparation and now we have two new statement stores in Abbots Cross, Newtownabbey, and Main Street Bangor, where shoppers can bag their next bargain.

We have been overwhelmed by the incredible selection of donations we have received from our supporters. Each shop is now fully stocked with a fantastic range of preloved goods at remarkable prices just waiting to be snapped up!

Northern Ireland Hospice is now accepting donations of clothing, shoes, fashion accessories, and household goods. So if have been de-cluttering your home in lockdown, or you fancy treating yourself to a new wardrobe buy, visit your local Northern Ireland Hospice Shop. All proceeds raised in-store go directly to Northern Ireland Hospice enabling us to continue to care and support local babies, children, and adults living with life-limiting or life-threatening illnesses.
