Our new WSBH Boutique opened on Friday 9 November on Chobham High Street, our first ever Woking Hospice shop was in Chobham and we are delighted to be back in the village with our new style retail outlet.
Janie Elliott-Dunn, Head of Retail for Woking & Sam Beare Hospices, commented: “At a time when the high street is in competition with the growth in online shopping, our new Chobham boutique marks the changing face of the past, and more traditional charity shop to the new face of retail for the Charity.
“Like many charities we are reliant on voluntary income and all the profits from the sale of goods from our 18 stores are vital funds that enable us to continue to deliver our care, free of charge across six Surrey Boroughs. It is therefore important for us to provide the very best shopping experience for our customers. Our Chobham shop is our first WSBH boutique, offering a range of high-end products, clothing, homeware and gifts. We are also introducing new goods, scarves and lifestyle items.”
Jayne Cooper, CEO of Woking & Sam Beare Hospices, said: “I am personally very excited about the opening of our WSBH boutique in Chobham – it looks absolutely stunning. We are exceptionally grateful to everyone who has enabled us to open this new store and I would like to take this opportunity to extend a special note of thanks to leading chartered surveyors and commercial agents Curchod & Co.
“We could not do what we do without our tremendous community, businesses and other supporters. As with all of our supporters and partners, we are extremely grateful to Curchod & Co for the outstanding services that they have provided us with and who are continuing to support us as much as is possible. Your expert professional services and advice has been invaluable in the acquisition of our new Chobham store – thank you.”
The Chobham Shop will be open for business from 9th November, opening hours Monday – Saturday 9:30 am – 5:00pm. Please drop in for plenty of gift ideas, Christmas stocking fillers or even a nice evening dress for your office party.
Janie adds: “We are very grateful to the local community for donations of pre-loved items they no longer want but are still in good saleable condition. With this in mind if anyone would like to donate goods – if you are a UK tax payer paying any tax at all, you can sign up for our Gift Aid scheme, which means we can claim back from the government 25p for every £1 on any item sold, at no extra cost to you. It adds 25% on every sale and is a win, win situation for everyone involved.”
