Not Another Charity Shop

Breaking news - another charity shop has not opened in Worcester Park.

However, the former 'Cameo Office Supplies' shop at the top of Central Road is now a showcase for second hand furniture being sold by St Raphael's Hospice (which has a storage immediately unit behind the premises).

This is just a temporary arrangement approved by the landlord whilst a paying tenant is found for the shop unit but blog sources say that several items of furniture were sold in the first few days so there are clearly plenty of people with an eye for a G-Plan bargain.

As regular blog readers will know I'm not the biggest fan of charity shops (at least not in that numbers that exist on Central Road) but this is better than having a shop unit empty.

In fact, if you'll excuse me being unusually nice about charity shops it's a shame that more vacant units in Worcester Park can't be put to an charitable use like this, until such time as there are paying tenants to occupy them.
