Devon's huge new 'pre-loved' store is hit with shoppers

A new Hospiscare charity shop opened its doors in the centre of Tiverton. Located on Market Walk, the new Hospiscare shop is the biggest charity shop in Tiverton and sells a wide range of quality pre-loved items, including homeware, furniture and clothing, as well as new goods.

In addition to its large open-plan shop floor, the store also has a donation sorting area to ensure that donated items are sorted and transferred to the shelves as quickly as possible for the consumer to enjoy. After opening its doors on Thursday, April 25, the shop has received a lot of interest from the local community and has already become Hospiscare’s top trading shop.

The charity is planning an official launch event towards the end of May. Retail director for Hospiscare, Rhodri Morgan, says: “We are thrilled to announce the opening of our new charity shop in Tiverton and we have some exciting things planned later in the month to celebrate – watch this space.

“As the largest charity shop in the town, we can provide our customers with a wide range of quality pre-loved and new goods, as well as the knowledge that every purchase will go towards supporting vital end-of-life care in their community.

“Our local charity is facing a £2.5 million funding deficit and at the beginning of April, we were forced to close four beds on our specialist ward and reduce our weekend community services. By supporting our new charity shop, the people of Tiverton will ultimately help us to continue providing essential care to those in need.

“We invite the community to join us as we embark on this new chapter. Together, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who rely on the vital services provided by Hospiscare.”

Hospiscare cares for over 2,000 patients and their families every year. With just 20% of the charity’s funding coming from the government, the local hospice relies on public fundraising to provide its specialist end-of-life care at no cost to its patients and their families.
