Essex and Herts Charity Shops and Clothing Banks

As of 29th March 2021, we were delighted to initiate the first stage of our retail reopening plan in line with the easing of COVID-19 restrictions. This included the reopening of our Stevenage Warehouse and Eastwood Shop (click & collect service only).

Following this, from the 12th April onwards the second stage of our retail reopening plan commenced. Our charity shops returned to normal opening hours and accepting donations every day.

For a full reopening list, see below.

From 12th April 2021:

  • Mersea
  • Burnham
  • Royston
  • Buntingford
  • Hitchin

Our Colchester shop is due to open late spring.

Whilst we are delighted to have reopened our charity shops, regretfully we have had to permanently close our Frinton-on-Sea shop. Please read the full press release for further details here.

We will continue to list items for sale on our eBay site here.
