Thames Hospice opened its fabulous new shop in front of a sea of eager shoppers in Langley on Tuesday 26 March.
Stars of ITVBes Absolutely Ascot, Chloe, Claudia and Samson, cut the ribbon at noon as crowds gathered outside to bag themselves a bargain from the fantastic choice of pre-loved clothing and accessories. The reality TV stars were also joined by the Mayor of Slough, Councillor Paul Sohal, Thames Hospice Ambassador Christine Small and Nurse Marissa.
The first day of trading was a huge success, with many local people visiting the store. Julie Rowley, Director of Retail at Thames Hospice, said: "We are delighted to have opened our shop in the heart of Langley with overwhelming support from the local community. There was a constant flow of customers all afternoon and we were thrilled at all the lovely comments we received. We raised over £2,000 just in the first day!"
The new store in Harrow Market offers an extensive range of quality pre-loved womenswear, menswear, childrenswear, vintage clothing and accessories, together with a beautiful range of new goods and homeware. There is also a special vault full of books, DVDs and vinyl. The store is now open Monday-Saturday, 9.00am-5.00pm, and Sunday 11.00am-5.00pm.
