Nightingale House announce closure of three charity shops “to protect the contribution of the remaining shops” for people living in or visiting the wrexham area

Nightingale House have expressed ‘great sadness’ as they have had to close three charity shops.

In a statement today the hospice said, “It is with great sadness that Nightingale House announces the closure of three of our charity shops: Cefn Mawr, Ellesmere and Rhos.”

“The last 18 months have proved very difficult for retail in general and we are subject to the same trading difficulties as others. Whilst we have seen a good recovery in sales in most of our shops, the three shops above are trading well below 2019 levels. This has meant that the amount that they contribute to the Hospice has reduced significantly. As the main purpose of our shops is to raise funds for the Hospice it is, with regret, that we announce their closure to protect the contribution of the remaining shops.”

They added, “We would like to acknowledge, and thank, the local communities for their tremendous support over many years by volunteering or donating and purchasing goods. We hope that they will continue to support the Hospice. ”

Katie Roberts, Head of Retail, said “I would like to say a personal thank you to all of the volunteers who have worked so hard in these shops for a number of years. We appreciate everything you have done for the Hospice and the contribution you have made.”

Anyone wishing to donate their goods can do so by dropping them off at any one of our remaining stores, details on the website .Each shop has limited space, so we recommend that you give the shop a call before dropping off your donation.

You can also book a free collection of large furniture items by completing their online booking form or by calling 01978 447990 – if you would like to volunteer at one of the stores, then you are encouraged to drop in and speak to the manager or apply online.
