Leaders of the Salvation Army in Hawick are hoping a new Community Store will boost their outreach work in the town – and help cut down on landfill.

The church and charity has opened a Community Store at 48 High Street,offering a range of quality preowned items for sale, including a small selection of furniture.

Daniel Rous, Divisional Charity Shops Operations Manager, said: “The project has had fantastic support so far. We’re hoping the shop will also have a positive environmental effect by helping cut down on the amount of the waste that ends up in landfill.”

The store is open Mon-Sat 9.30am to 4.30pm.
