Army outlet delighted by opening day

A new charity shop opened in Morpeth last week with vintage and high end fashions on offer among the items on offer.

The Salvation Army Trading Company Ltd (SATCoL) shop opened in Newgate Street.

A first for SATCoL and for Morpeth, the new boutique shop proved to be very popular with local shoppers as it began trading.

SATCoL’s area manager, Anthony Cummings, said: “We have been getting everything ready for the new shop for weeks and the opening has been absolutely brilliant.

“The number of people who have come along to our opening day far exceeded our expectations and the shop has been an instant hit with the people of Morpeth.”
