Scrappies Is Now Open on Thursdays Too!

You will understand that we cannot guarantee that we will be able to stay open, and we may have to alter our plans again with very little notice. However, we’re happy to announce that we will be open for an extra day each week, starting with half-term.

Opening Times and Safety Measures from 28th October, 2020 :

Planning your visit:

  • The store will be open on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 10am to 4pm by appointment only.
  • Please phone 07933 843 570 to make an appointment to shop.
  • The last appointment of the day will be at 3.30pm.
  • Please try to restrict the size of your group and inform us when booking if there are going to be more than two people in a party.

At the store:

  • Please follow the exterior signs to the new entrance at the rear of the shop and ring the bell for attention, if necessary.

  • Donations will be stored for at least 72 hours before we handle them or put them out in the shop.

Thank you for your understanding: we look forward to seeing you again!
