Our Rugby Shop's 1st Birthday
On Saturday 3rd September we celebrated the 1st birthday of our shop on Church Street in Rugby.
It was a fantastic day which was very well prepared by our team, Heather, Ruth and our four volunteers.
More than 100 people visited the shop. 339 items were sold, and 360 new items were added to the stock. It was the busiest day we’ve had since we opened the shop in September last year.
Our tombola was a big success. Thank you to all the customers who donated gifts to the tombola and thank you to all our customers who shopped with us in our half price birthday sale.
A big thank you to all our staff for making this event so successful.
Thank you also to the Mayor of Rugby who visited the shop in the afternoon. Your visit made our first-year birthday a very special day.
During the first year, our shop has sold over 20,000 items of clothes, served nearly 10,000 customers, and saved 50 tonnes of CO2 from adding to the Climate Change problem.
