The Sue Ryder shop in Grantham is set to relaunch on Good Friday, offering shoppers even more bargains than before.

Staff at the store in the Isaac Newton Centre are busy re-pricing every item of stock so nothing will cost more than £1 and are preparing for a rush of shoppers when the doors reopen at 9am on Friday.

The shop is the first the charity has opened in the town and staff have been inundated with donations of stock, offers of volunteer help and customers keen to find a bargain.

Tara Thorpe, retail fundraising appeal manager for the Thorpe Hall Capital Appeal, said: “We’ve only been here for three months but we’ve been made to feel very much part of the town. This is our way of offering our customers even more for their money and hopefully bringing in some new shoppers, too. With nothing priced at more than £1 customers can revamp for their wardrobe for less than £20.”

All the money raised in the shop will go straight into the Thorpe Hall Capital Appeal to fund the building of a new hospice at Thorpe Hall in Peterborough. Thorpe Hall provides end of life care for patients from across the region, including Grantham, Bourne and surrounding villages and towns.
