A hospice has revamped its largest and busiest shop as a clearance outlet store.

The St Clare Hospice shop behind The Range in Edinburgh Way, Harlow, opened in 1991 and has become a favourite shopping destination for bargain hunters.

It now sells all adult clothing for £2 each, with four kids clothing items for £2 and high street brand names on its rails.

Shop manager Kevin Stocker said: “We are keen to let people know that we have some high street brand names on our rails; Next, Marks & Spencer, H&M and Tu are just a few. Just because it is £2 doesn’t mean it is low quality.

“What is also great is, people are coming along to buy, and just as importantly, they are also bringing good quality donations for us to sell. Our feet haven’t touched the ground, but the staff and volunteers love it as there is a great buzz about the place now. Knowing that every sale we makes helps pay for nursing and other specialist palliative care for local people is a real incentive.”

The shop also has a large furniture area, with sofas, chairs, mirrors and more, and the shop can deliver locally for a fee.

Kevin added, “We know the importance of acknowledging and thanking our donors, so we have also introduced an improved donation drop area. We listened to feedback about the experience some people were having so we have a new improved donation area so we can meet, greet and sign our donors up to our retail Gift Aid scheme. We hope our new customers love it as much as our loyal customers. We can’t wait to get going every day and hear the tills ringing up the sales for St Clare Hospice.”

The Harlow Clearance Outlet Store is open seven days a week, from 9.30am to 4.30pm.
