Your local Age UK re-invents the charity shop experience in Weymouth

(NSWD) is re-opening its Weymouth shop on Saturday 4 July 2020 with a brand-new look and location.  

The local Charity is re-opening its newly relocated retail premises in St. Mary Street, Weymouth at 09:00am on Saturday 4 July 2020. Their first customer, chosen via social media, will have the honour of not only opening the store, but having a VIP shopping experience with the store all to themselves for the first 30 minutes.

Operations Manager, Sarah Frigot said: “We are excited to be gradually re-opening our shops beginning with our new store opposite Marks & Spencer in Weymouth.

“We have worked hard to re-open the shops as soon as we possibly can, closely following Government guidelines on cleanliness and social distancing to ensure a safe shopping experience for our customers, staff and volunteers.”

For the first time, Age UK NSWD will also be offering some of its other services from the high street – with toenail cutting and information & advice available from consulting rooms in store.

Age UK NSWD has been fortunate enough to benefit from kind donations from local people who have cleared out clothes, books, DVDs and Bric-a-Brac during lockdown.

Sarah Continued: “Our shop has some lovely, quality new stock, kindly donated by local people. Customers will find our new shop clearer and easier to navigate, and I look forward to welcoming the shoppers of Weymouth to an improved, more pleasurable shopping experience.

“Your support to Age UK NSWD and your local high street, will ensure that we can continue to fight loneliness and isolation in older people – not just in times of crisis such as COVID -19 – but for generations of local people to come.”
