HARP, the homeless charity for Southend, has announced that its furniture shop will be moving from London Road to 84 Southend High Street.
The charity’s current charity shop at 112 Southend High Street will also move to the same site temporarily while the existing shop is renovated.
The new shop, opening on Monday May 17, will be the first charity shop of its kind on Southend High Street, providing a range of furniture, electricals and homeware including soft furnishings and bed linen, as well as clothing, accessories, bric-a-brac, books, DVDs and records.
Tracy Dulwich, HARP’s head of charity shops, said: “We are very excited about the move and hope that we can help bring trade to Southend High Street after a very difficult year.
“We’re looking forward to being positioned in the heart of Southend’s community and in a better position for passing shoppers to pop in and browse.”
The new shop is on the site of what used to be a Moss Bros store, on the corner of the High Street and Tylers Avenue, in front of the Pipe of Port.
There is paid parking just behind the store in the Pitman Close car park, and customers can arrange to collect purchases or drop off donations at the back door.
