AN OSWESTRY charity furniture shop will reopen its doors in July after being closed for months during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Age UK Shropshire Telford and Wrekin is reopening their charity furniture shops, with the Oswestry-based store back open on Monday, July 13.

The charity is following government guidelines with staff and volunteers working hard behind the scenes to ensure their shops are safe to reopen for customers.

Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin needs to raise funds via their shops to provide vital services to older people across the county.

With the reopening of the furniture shops in the coming weeks, the charity is inviting customers to pop in for a browse to see the variety of items on sale.

Heather Osborne, chief executive of Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin, said: “We have introduced new safety measures following government guidance and advice from the Charity Retail Association to ensure our shops are a safe environment for staff, volunteers and customers.

“We have lost significant income over the past three months to fund the services we provide local older people so we are really looking forward to getting our shops up and running again and welcoming everyone back”.
