Sue Ryder launches new revamped store
THE town’s Sue Ryder charity shop has reopened in bigger and better store.
It relaunched on Saturday, January 16, following an expansion to accommodate the new stock it is taking on.
Located on Churchill Way, Macclesfield, it now sells more new furniture from well-known home brands, as well as donated furniture and bric-a-brac.
It also has a new section, dedicated to vintage and retro clothing, a particular speciality of Sue Ryder.
The new and improved store was opened at 11am by the mayor of Macclesfield, Coun Liz Durham, and people from the area were invited to celebrate the event and enjoy the party atmosphere, refreshments and a raffle.
Shop manager Sarah Fox said: “It’s very exciting to be expanding our shop.
“We have so much fantastic new stock and there is such high demand in the Macclesfield area that we just needed more space to sell it. Furniture sells particularly well as it’s always high quality – especially our range of new famous home brands.”
Liz Yates, retail area manager for south Manchester and Lancashire, said: “It is great to be starting the new year with a bigger and better shop in Macclesfield.
“It’s a really popular shop and I think the fact we’re extending it reflects that.
“As well as furniture, vintage and retro clothing always sells very well around Macclesfield and Manchester for us, so I think the new vintage and retro section of the shop should go down very well.”
Staff at the Sue Ryder Macclesfield store are now on the look out for volunteers to help in the new-look premises.
This is an ideal opportunity for someone looking to get in to retail, for vintage and retro clothing enthusiasts, but also for people who simply want to volunteer to help Sue Ryder provide incredible hospice and neurological care.
