Kidderminster – open

Shop reopen

We’re delighted to announce all 19 of our shops have reopened, following temporary closure for the second national lockdown.

Covid-secure measures are in place at our shops, and we can’t wait to welcome you back safely.

Usual opening hours for each shop have resumed. All our shops will close at 4pm on Thursdays. See below for this shop’s full opening hours.

Thank you for your support while we have been closed. We hope to see you soon!

  • We are not able to accept donations of clothing or linen at this time.
  • Please bring your donations in a sealed bag, or box – ideally with a lid to enable stacking.
  • Items will be isolated for 48 hours before handling.
  • Please ensure boxes are of a manageable size, and weigh no more than 8kg.
  • Please ensure individual items are appropriately wrapped and not loose.
  • If you gift aid goods, please get labels from the shop and attach to your donations.

The quality of our care depends on the quality of your donations. For advice on what we can and can’t accept, see our Quality Donation Guide.

Thank you for your generosity and support of our hospice care.

About our Kidderminster shop

The spacious premises, spanning two floors, can be found at 17-18 High Street.

Along with clothing, varied bric-a-brac, CDs, DVDs, there is an impressive collection of around 12,000 books for literature-lovers to browse. On the first floor we also have a furniture department with items also for sale on the ground floor.

The premises were carefully chosen for their excellent location in the heart of Kidderminster and will help raise awareness of the charity – which supports patients from the area at its In-patient Unit in Worcester.

Currently, the hospice has 18 shops and a warehouse spread across the county – spanning towns in north Worcestershire including Bewdley and Stourport, right down to Broadway in the picturesque Cotswolds.

Thanks to our staff, volunteers and customers, each year the hospice sells around 205,000 items of clothing, 85,000 items of bric-a-brac, 90,000 books and 7,000 items of furniture.

This goes a tremendous way towards helping St Richard’s fund its compassionate, free care to patients living with a serious progressive illness, their families and bereaved people across the county.

Chance to volunteer at  shop

Volunteering in our shops can be an extremely varied and rewarding experience as there is a whole range of areas to work in – from manning the till to creating eye-catching window displays and sorting and pricing the many donations.

For many volunteers, the experience they gain working in the hospice’s shops benefits them in the long-term – with previous volunteers going on to secure permanent work in the retail sector with skills learned as a volunteer.

If you have recently visited one of our shops we should be grateful if you would complete our short customer service survey, thank you.
