Bargain clothing and homeware from leading retailers are now on sale to shoppers in the Wirral after Newlife’s charity reopens its store this week.
Newlife, which sells surplus items from more than 240 leading high street retailers, has reopened its shop to customers in Hoylake Road, Moreto.
Eager shoppers had been looking forward to the store returning to business since it temporarily closed three months ago following the pandemic outbreak.
Limited, safe and reduced measures have been introduced to ensure that the store is Covid secure and that everything is in line with Government guidelines.
It is hoped local people will come out to support the shop, which helps fund vital equipment for disabled and terminally ill children. The charity has lost £2 million in income during the lockdown.
Nina Barnes, Shop Manager, said: “Everyone at Newlife Moreton can’t wait to finally be able to welcome back our supporters when we reopen the store this week.
“Our fantastic staff and volunteers have been working hard to ensure customers can enjoy a Covid secure and safe shopping experience.
“Our staff will be wearing PPE and there’ll be some measures in place for the time being but you’ll still be able to browse a huge range of top quality clothing and more.
“It’s been a difficult few months since the start of lockdown and we hope people will come out to support us so Newlife can continue helping disabled children and their families.”
Social distancing measures and extra aisle space have been introduced to protect both customers and staff.
Full details of the opening and closing hours at all of the charity’s stores can be found on Newlife’s website at www.newlifestores.co.uk
Customers shopping at the Moreton store helps fund Newlife’s aim of providing essential specialist equipment to disabled and terminally ill children.
The charity also operates a nurse-run helpline and contributes to changes in local and national policies on the provision of equipment for disabled children.
More than 240 leading high street retailers and manufacturers donate surplus items, faulty products and customer returns to Newlife, which prevents them from ending up dumped in landfill.
It then removes all labels to protect retailers from fraudulent returns and sells the items at much reduced prices.
Over the last three decades it has provided specialist equipment to more than 22,500 children as well as helping fund £15.7million of research.
