Shoppers queued round the block to find a bargain when the new Barnardo’s store opened in March.
The new store in Area D6, Unit 37, The Causeway, Gas Road, will be selling a treasure trove of new goods and high quality ladies and men’s fashion, kid’s clothes and toys, as well as selected new goods.
Barnardo’s Area Business Manager, Samantha Dean says: “We are delighted to be opening a new shop in March. We want to encourage local people to pick up a great quality bargain with us whilst also helping Barnardo’s to give disadvantaged children a better future”.
The store is also putting out a plea for a flow of good quality donations.
Samantha adds: “We will always be looking to find new stock for the shop, so please don’t throw out any good quality children’s clothes or toys and games. We can sell them which will allow us to fund the work we do with vulnerable and disadvantaged children, as well as being good for the environment.”
The store also has opportunities for volunteers to work in its stock room and on the shop floor. Volunteering can often help as a route into work and will have the opportunity to build up NVQ’s qualifications which can help secure jobs.
