A charity shop in Lowestoft is set to close.
The Salvation Army’s charity shop, on the town’s High Street, will close with the remaining stock to be sold through ‘Pop-Up’ shop events.
Lieutenants Adrian and Gemma Allen, commanding officers of the Lowestoft Citadel Salvation Army Church in Battery Green Road, said it was a “difficult decision.”
They added: “Unfortunately, the shop was no longer financially viable. However, The Salvation Army’s charity shop on London Road South remains open.
“The remaining stock will be brought to our church and community centre on Beach Road and will be sold as a ‘Pop-Up’ Shop on August 23, 24, August 30 and August 31 from 9am to 5pm. At our Pop-Up Shop, while we sell the remaining stock, we will also be serving hot and cold drinks and snacks. We will also be holding our extended Saturday coffee mornings on August 26 and September 2.
“We hope that the public will attend and buy much of the stock as all proceeds will help towards the other community activities that takes place at Lowestoft Citadel.”
