A NEW AgeUK pop-up shop will open in Bromsgrove town centre later this month and the charity wants nominations for a person to officially open it.
The charity’s new store will be at 113 High Street – the former Dorothy Perkins shop – and will specialise in good-quality, pre-loved furniture and homeware.
It will also offer a range of sustainable and affordable clothing and shoes, books and toys plus those ‘vintage items’ and other ‘great finds’.
Age UK Bromsgrove, Redditch and Wyre Forest (BRWF) CEO, Amanda Allen, said: “We are really pleased to be starting 2022 with positive news.
“Whilst we have been able to accept some furniture items at our charity shops and eBay store, we have never had the space to be able to properly develop furniture sales – this ‘pop-up’ shop provides us with that opportunity to develop our retail income so we can continue developing the support and services we provide for local older people.
“The location of the store on the High Street will also help to raise awareness of our work as a local charity.
“Our shops have always been important ‘local hubs’ and we hope that ‘High Street’ will be a vibrant community shop, which is why we are seeking nominations for members of the community to officially open the store.”

The charity also wants to hear from anyone who has furniture or household items they want to donate and from people interested in volunteering at the new store.
