We are excited to announce plans to open a new flagship superstore in Oswestry town centre.

Our retail management team is delighted to announce the exciting plans

Together our 15 shops raise more than £1 million each year towards the £7.5 million needed to fund care for every child in need.

The new Oswestry store will open this Spring at premises on Smithfield Street, which was formerly occupied by Argos. Work will begin shortly to fit out the superstore where the charity will sell an extensive range of new and pre-loved items donated by supporters who believe in what they do and want to help seriously ill local children.

Our Head of Retail Suzanne Cumming said the new location was more than three times the size of the charity’s existing store on nearby English Walls, which would be closing in due course.

Exciting plans

“We already have incredible support for our existing Oswestry store from people in the surrounding area who bring us donations of stock and who shop with us,” explained Suzanne.

“Their generosity has meant we have outgrown our existing store. This exciting new store will be our flagship, giving us much more space to display our pre-loved items and brand new giftware, and also introduce new lines such as furniture.

“It will also be a fantastic environment for our staff and volunteers, and we are hoping that even more people will be tempted to join our family and help us to run the shop. We have a whole range of volunteering opportunities on the shop floor and behind the scenes so whatever you would love to do, we would love to meet you.

“We are proud to be investing in Oswestry at this time and are confident that, because of the fantastic support we have in the area, this move will help us to raise even more money to fund our vital services for local children and their families.”

Our retail team would love to hear from anyone interested in the volunteering opportunities on offer or who has items of furniture they would like to donate, which can be collected free of charge. Alternatively, you can call the team on 01691 672607.
