“Yesterdays” charity shop to close after 15 years

Katharine House Hospice’s Yesterdays shop at 13 High Street Stone will be closing on the 15th December after 15 years in the town.

A closing down sale is currently taking place. Stone shoppers can still support the hospice by browsing a selection of fashion items at their other High Street shop, at number 23, as well as their huge shop at Norton Bridge.

A Katherine House Hospice Spokesperson said:

“The Yesterdays shop has been a popular place to find the unusual and unique in the town, but over the last few years the charity’s huge out of town shop at Norton Bridge has been offering a much larger selection for local people. The Norton Bridge shop added a cafe and garden centre to its list of attractions recently and has now become a popular destination for shoppers and supporters.”

Head of Retail, Iain Miller said

“We are sad to be closing the Yesterdays shop, but do not feel we can continue to sustain two viable shops on the High Street in Stone.

We are committed to providing choice and value to the people of the area and have made our Norton Bridge shop a destination store – that way we can raise the most funds to support our vital free care.

All staff at Yesterdays have been offered employment at other shops in the local area. In the run up to the closure of Yesterdays, shoppers can find something unique at in our closing down sale. Our existing Stone shop is real fashion boutique that specialises in ladieswear and accessories.

Customers have found fashion treasure including labels such as Gerry Weber, Jaeger, Viyella, etc. The shop also has a fantastic selection of hats, shoes, bags and clothing for the special occasion”

Items can still be donated directly at the 23 High St. Shop and larger items at the Norton Bridge shop.

For very large items such as furniture the hospice offers a free collection service, collections can be arranged by calling 01785 760881

Iain added:

“we would like to thank our wonderful customers and donors who through their support of the shops allow us to make a difference to the lives of local people.”
