WILMSLOW is set to open its own charity boutique for formerly loved designer brand fashion clothing.

The town, which is classed as part of the wealthy Golden Triangle which includes Alderley Edge and Prestbury, will see the opening of a Salvation Army boutique on Water Lane, next Tuesday(March 15), at 10.30am.

The Salvation Army has decided that Wilmslow will be the home of its third boutique charity shop in the UK with residents being invited to the official opening ceremony at its newWater Lane premises.

Visitors at the Wilmslow boutique opening will be the first to choose from a wide range of vintage items, designer names, as well as high end fashion pieces, that have been hand-picked from the public’s generous donations.

Nick Morton, Salvation Army's head of retail said: “We are delighted to be expanding the number of our boutiques in the UK and even more so to be opening in the beautiful town of Wilmslow. Shoppers here have a real eye for fashion and the standard of shopping in the area is very high – we’re privileged to be in a fantastic and central location, and I think the quality of our stock will go down really well.

“The wonderful thing with our boutiques is that you never know what you’re going to find – I remember one especially happy Northumberland customer stumbling across a Jimmy Choo handbag! We’re looking forward to seeing lots of happy customers at the opening ceremony on the 10th March!”

He added: “The shop’s team has been busy making everything look fabulous for the opening day, and I think Wilmslow shoppers will really appreciate the stylish interior, high quality stock, customer service, and the whole shopping experience for many years to come.”

Any profits made will go to social welfare work of The Salvation Army, including homelessness and addiction services, care for older people, help at emergency incidents, support for adult victims of human trafficking in England and Wales.
