Welcome Back to Shopping with St Peter's Hospice

Welcome Back to Shopping with St Peter's Hospice

08 Jun 2020

Shops

We are starting the careful process of gradually reopening our shops around Bristol and are looking forward to welcoming back our wonderful staff, volunteers and customers.

However we are proceeding cautiously; your safety and the safety of our team is our number one priority and we’ll be following government guidelines to protect you whilst you shop and work.

We are opening our seven biggest stores first on Monday 15 June, to give shoppers the maximum amount of space to move around and keep to social distancing rules. The first stores to open are:

 

City Centre, 9 St James Barton BS1 3LT, Monday - Saturday 10:30-15:30, Sunday 11:00-16:00

Horfield, 315 Gloucester Road Horfield BS7 8PE, Monday - Saturday 10:30-15:30

Yate, 21-23 South Parade Yate Shopping Centre BS37 4BB, Monday - Saturday 10:30-15:30

Keynsham, 63 High Street Keynsham BS31 1DS, Monday - Saturday 10:30-15:30

Nailsea, 126 High Street Nailsea BS48 1AH, Monday - Saturday 10:30-15:30

Totterdown, 172 Wells Road Knowle BS4 2AL, Tuesday - Saturday 10:30-15:30

Furniture and Home, Unit 5 The Concourse, 39 Brislington Hill BS4 5BE, Monday - Saturday 11:00-16:00

 

When you visit us, you’ll notice we’ve made changes in store to make your shopping experience as safe as possible:

 

 

  • We’re asking people to stay two meters apart from each other at all times, as you are everywhere else at the moment
  • Where possible we’ve laid out routes, like the ones in many of the supermarkets, to guide you around the store and help you keep a safe distance from other customers. Please follow these routes.
  • We’ve installed screens around our tills for the safety of you, and our staff and volunteers.
  • We’re encouraging everyone, as much as possible, to pay by card (ideally contactless). We have also made changes to how we are handling donations so you know that what you buy is safe.
    - All donations are held for 72 hours before being touched or processed
    - Once the 72 hours have passed, all clothes will be steamed and all other objects cleaned with antibacterial wipes

 

As always, we can only accept donations that are good enough quality to be sold on in the shops. When we receive things that are dirty, broken or poor quality, the hospice has to pay from them to be taken away which is money we would rather spend on patient care.

If you are not sure whether an item is suitable you can check our list of items we are unable to accept.


Donating

We will be following strict social distancing rules for the safety of our staff and for those donating. All donations will be left for 72 hours before being touched or processed. Once the 72 hours have passed, all clothes will be steamed and all other objects cleaned with antibacterial wipes. We will only be accepting a maximum of five bags/boxes per donation.

 

We CAN accept:

  • clean clothes
  • small bric a brac

 

We CANNOT accept:

  • DVDs
  • bedding
  • electricals

 

As always, we really can only accept donations that are good enough quality to be sold on in the shops. When we receive things that are dirty, broken or poor quality, we have to pay to have them taken away. This is an expense we cannot afford so please bear this in mind when bringing us your donations. Thank you.


Ebay shop

If you can't make it to any of our shops, we're delighted to let you know that our Ebay shop is currently open for online shopping.

All the money raised through goods bought in our shops go towards funding our patient care.

Through shopping with us, you are supporting our vital services.
