Norfolk and Waveney Mind is set to reopen its charity shop in Downham Market for the first time since lockdown.
The shop in Cousins Court, which closed its doors in March because of the coronavirus pandemic, will reopen to the public on Monday, 19th October with Covid-safe measures to protect shoppers and staff.
Shoppers will be able to enter the store two at a time, with hand sanitiser at the door and safety screens at the tills.
If you’ve had a lockdown clearout and have items such as clothes, shoes and bags to donate, you can bring them to the shop during opening hours which are 10am to 2pm, Monday to Friday. The shop can’t currently accept large quantities of books or DVDs or baby pushchairs and cots; please ask staff about donating electrical items.
Donations should be brought in through the side door and will be quarantined for 72 hours before being sorted and cleaned ready to go on sale.
Natalie Sutterby, Commercial Development Manager at Norfolk and Waveney Mind, said: “We can’t wait to open our doors and welcome shoppers back into our shop.
“Our team have worked really hard to make sure that shopping with us is a safe and enjoyable experience, and of course all the money raised by shop will help our much-needed services supporting mental health and wellbeing in our community.”
