The shop is a very popular charity shop. It offers a wide range of goods from clothes to toys, china to books, plus jewellery and knick knacks and is constantly changing. Individuals spend half a day working in the shop, with support, gaining skills in all the requirements of a retail environment.
· Sorting, preparing and storing donations from the public
· Labelling the goods for sale
· Displaying goods and keeping the shop clean and tidy
· Serving customers and handling money, learning how to use the till
· Assisting in record keeping and cashing up
The aim is for people to move on and work as volunteers in other shops and eventually gain enough experience to work in a paid retail job. The shop is located on Bulwark Road and the opening hours are from 9.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. Monday to Friday and from 9.30 a.m. to 12 noon on a Saturday.
We would be very grateful for any good quality items that we can sell in the shop – please call us on 01291 623216 or call into the shop during opening hours. We politely request you do not leave donations outside due to the fact it causes obstructions to our neighbours.
The shop also has stocks of the red and purple recycling bags issued by Monmouthshire County Council, so if you run short, pop in to see us and have a browse at the same time!
