The charity shop window that’s had customers ‘more or less fighting over stock’

The charity shop window that’s had customers ‘more or less fighting over stock’

Jan 18, 2019

There has been a clamour to grab items from a Lowestoft charity shop after its window display themed on the coastal town.

Books about and pictures of Lowestoft, plus a series of coastal-themed ornaments, including a lighthouse and a seagull, have generated great footfall for EACH in London Road South.

Rowan Gaskin, says: “We had a lot of stock when we initially did the window last Friday (11 January), but we couldn’t keep the customers out. People were more or less fighting over stock!

“A lot has gone. There are still a few bits left for between £1 and £5. If you haven’t managed to get your hands on anything this time, do keep your eyes peeled because we now plan to make this a frequent thing.

“I’d like to say a big thank you to two of my volunteers, Olwen and Tracy, who did the display. They keep the window on trend and change it up to keep it interesting every couple of weeks.”

Rowan is from Gorleston-on-Sea, but loves walking along Lowestoft’s beaches and looking at the beach huts when she’s not working.

For more information give the shop a call on 01502 563726 or drop by the shop for a chat.
