Cromer Pier’s Claude the Crab is to put his pincers to good use and help snip the ribbon at the opening of the town’s new EACH shop.
We will open the doors of the former Barclays bank, at the corner of Tucker Street and Jetty Street, at 10am on Thursday (30 May). The interior is undergoing quite a transformation, with Barclays generously funding large parts of the work as part of its departure. Among other changes, the customer interview rooms are being turned into a menswear department and the bank manager’s office into a dedicated children’s room.
Claude will be on hand to herald the building’s new era. Deb Lewis, Cromer Pier Box Office & Retail Manager, said: “We’re absolutely delighted Claude was invited to open the shop for such a worthy charity and we wish EACH every success for the future.”
The shop will trade seven days a week, offering the same range of high-quality goods customers of EACH’s 14 other Norfolk shops are used to.
Laura Mackay, who has been at the helm of the successful EACH shop in Fakenham, will be taking over in Cromer and is looking forward to helping make it a real part of the community.
We welcome donations of the following clean and good-quality goods: clothing, bric-a-brac, modern paperbacks, toys, jewellery, DVDs/CDs, household linens, retro and vintage clothes, and small electrical items. These can be dropped off at the new shop from Monday (27 May).
Anyone interested in more information on volunteering at the new shop can drop by now or email email@example.com.
