Revamped hospice shop set to open

21st June 2019

A revamped hospice shop is set to throw open its doors to customers this weekend.

The St Richard’s Hospice shop in Mill Lane, Bromsgrove, will officially re-open at 9.30am on Saturday, June 22.

The store was previously a St Richard’s Hospice dress agency, called Déjà vu, but has been transformed into a traditional charity shop.

It will boast a fresh stock of men’s and ladies clothing, accessories, bric-a-brac and new goods over one floor.

Dan Corns, Commercial Director at St Richard’s Hospice, said: “We are excited to re-open our Bromsgrove store this weekend.

“We have updated the shop to a traditional format, as our previous dress agency did not perform in the same way as our Déjà vu store in Malvern.

“Customers can browse a wonderful range of quality second-hand and new goods – with proceeds helping to fund our care to patients and their families.

“We have an ever-growing portfolio of fantastic shops, all staffed by a brilliant team of staff and volunteers, across the county.

“If you are interested in volunteering at our new shop in Bromsgrove, gaining skills and helping to make a difference, then we want to hear from you!”

Following the official re-opening, the shop hours will be 9am to 5pm Monday to Saturday.
