Donation open day and date for first Weldmar shop opening revealed
Re-opening our chain of charity shops will be in phases from 15th June, once each site can be made safe
Weldmar Hospicecare will start to re-open from Monday 15th June, with the Dorchester Outlet first to open their doors on that date.
This will be followed soon after by the outlets at Weymouth and Shaftesbury.
In total, 14 of the shops are expected to open their doors by the early July, with 12 remaining closed because they are too small to enable social distancing.
In addition, Weymouth Outlet, on the Granby Industrial Estate will open for donations only on Friday 5th June from 10am to 3pm.
We’re asking that anyone wanting to make a donation only brings what they can comfortably carry.
Weldmar’s Director of Retail, Gavin Anderson-Terry, outlined the plans, and how we”ve made our shops safe environments for visitors, staff and volunteers:
