Ensuring your safety

To continue to keep our community and visitors safe, if you or a family member that you live with are waiting for a COVID test result, feeling unwell or displaying any COVID symptoms, please do not visit. We request that customers be mindful about maintaining social distancing whilst shopping and make regular use of the hand sanitising stations provided. We have carried out a rigorous Risk Assessment with enhanced cleaning measures and perspex screens at our tills, and we’re asking customers to pay using contactless if possible.

Raising funds to help people who’ve experienced homelessness

Everything we sell helps our charity continue our work supporting people who have experienced homelessness to turn their lives around. If you have unwanted items, why not donate them to our shops? We can collect larger items for free, from your home or business in the local area. Our donation drop-off area is open Wednesday to Saturday 10am – 2.30pm and Sunday 10am – 2.30pm. Find out why
