Willow Wood charity shop in Glossop is back and it's better than ever

The old shop on 57 High Street West permanently closed on Saturday, May 25.   

The new shop is situated across the road at 12 High Street West – which was most recently One Bay and previously Thomas Cook.

It opened to customers for the first time on Wednesday, May 29 – when the High Peak Mayor, Councillor Stewart Gardner, officially cut the ribbon. On opening day, customers received a raffle ticket with every purchase and one lucky person won a food hamper. 

Pauline Lunt, Head of Retail at Willow Wood Hospice, said: “We are always looking to improve our retail offering and we had outgrown our space in Glossop thanks to the fantastic support of the local community. 

“In our new premises, we have an increased floor space and a greater high street presence.

“We wish to express our sincere thanks to local businesses who have supported us in getting the new shop up and running – including Colebarn Developments Ltd in Hadfield.” 

Caroline Lillis, Glossop shop manager, added: “We are really excited about our new Glossop shop, which is bigger and brighter with an extended range of items. 

“We are grateful for the support of the Glossop community and look forward to welcoming customers old and new.”  

The shop is open seven days a week, from 9.30am to 4.30pm Mondays to Saturdays and 10.30am to 4.30pm on Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays. 

You can contact the shop by calling 0161 669 4855 and keep an eye out on the community noticeboard in the shop for updates about the Hospice, its services and fundraising events. 

Supporting the Hospice’s charity shops is just one way that people can make a difference to patients from the local community. 

Donations of new or used items, dropped off during the shop’s opening hours, are always appreciated to ensure they become the gift that keeps on giving. See which items you can donate at https://willowwood.org.uk/what-can-i-donate/

The Hospice would also be grateful to anyone who can spare a few hours every week to lend a hand in the new shop. No previous retail experience is needed as training will be given. You can express your interest by visiting https://willowwood.org.uk/hospice-volunteering/interest/
