St Luke’s Hospice has confirmed that the first of its award winning chain of 14 charity shops will re-open on Monday, June 29.
The St Luke’s shops – which together raise almost £3 million for the charity every year – have been closed throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
But the Crookes shop will be open once more on June 29, with a phased re-opening for the other stores to be rolled out over the coming weeks.
This follows the successful re-opening of the St Luke’s Donation Centre at Fieldhouse Way, near Meadowhall, which is now accepting unwanted items every day from 12 noon to 3pm.
The St Luke’s eBay and Amazon shops are also now operating online once more.
“Obviously we are having to adapt all our shops to comply with government advice on social distancing so our customers should expect some changes when they start visiting us again,” said St Luke’s Head of Retail Marie Egerton.
“That said, we still want to guarantee the same warm welcome and the same great range of items that everybody expects.”
