Julia’s House to open charity shop in Devizes

Julia’s House is opening a second Wiltshire charity shop, this time in Devizes.

The charity, which has just celebrated the first anniversary of the opening of the county’s first children’s hospice in the town, already has a shop in Salisbury and nine other shops across Dorset.

The new store, in Maryport Street, will open later this summer. Work to transform the building will begin in mid-July and will be followed by a series of drop-in days in August for anyone interested in volunteering there. The shop is expected to open in late August or early September.

Retail manager Tracy Stanley said: ”We are thrilled to have found a great location for our Devizes shop. We have already had such wonderful support from the town for our hospice. Many kind people have come along to make donations at Julia’s House. The care team have limited storage there so it will be brilliant to have a dedicated place where people can drop off items and pop in to browse, shop and have a chat. “

The Devizes shop will be open from Monday to Saturday, 9am to 5pm and will feature a wide range of women’s men’s and children’s clothing, plus bric-a-brac, toys and homeware. Julia’s House shops are known for their distinct ‘boutique’ style and have played a part in transforming the look and feel of charity shops locally.

Julia’s House is currently advertising for a manager and assistant manager as well as volunteering roles. Further details can be found at juliashouse.org/jobs.
