Ardgowan Hospice’s shops & COVID-19

In March our shops, like most, had to close due to the pandemic. As restrictions have eased, we have been able to reopen some of our shops through Inverclyde. It’s been wonderful seeing familiar faces in customers and volunteers again and we’re excited to welcome new visitors across our doorsteps. During this time we have given our Kempock Street shop a fresh lick of paint, and completed the move of our Kilmacolm shop. It’s a pleasure to be able to share these changes with you now!

Update 2nd July 2020: We’re pleased to announce that our West Stewart Street & Kempock Street shops will reopen on Saturday 4th July.

Update 17th July 2020: We’re pleased to announce that our Oak Mall shop will reopen on Saturday 18th July. 

Update 14th November 2020: We’re pleased to announce that our new Kilmacolm shop reopens on Saturday 14th November.

  • Individual shop opening times can be found at the foot of this page – these can be subject to change so it is kindly suggested to call if you’re travelling any distance to visit a shop near closing time.
  • All shops have maximum capacities – this may change from new government guidance/shop layout. The current capacity will be displayed at the shop.
  • Please wear a mask when visiting
  • Please use the hand sanitiser stations when visiting
  • Please treat our amazing volunteers with respect. The rules they enforce have been passed down by our retail team who have taken guidance on how to operate our shops for the safety of customers and volunteers alike.

See poster below for full information. Please note that details are subject to immediate change. We will update our website, social media, and signage to reflect these changes when made.

Visit one of our charity shops and grab yourself a bargain.  Any purchases you make, or goods you donate will help to pay for vital treatment for patients and their families affected by a life limiting illness.

A full list of our shops is available below.  Donations can be made at any of our stores, or at our warehouse situated at the back of our West Stewart Street shop. Please note, we cannot accept toys or electrical goods.

Fancy learning new skills and making a difference in your local community?

Our shops are always on the lookout for new volunteers to be part of the friendly hospice team. Volunteers are involved in a wide range of roles and day-to-day activities that support the running of each store for two hours or more a week.

On the shop floor you could be involved with providing excellent customer service, processing transactions on the tills, replenishing stock and putting up eye-catching displays to entice customers in.

Behind the scenes, volunteers get involved with store housekeeping and administration, sorting through donations to find those hidden gems and preparing goods for sale by sorting, steaming and pricing items.

So if you’re up for a new challenge, contact our Volunteer Co-ordinator at lynsey.young@ardhosp.co.uk.

Please note that many of our shops are volunteer led!

These driven and fantastic individuals play a vital part in the hospice machine and help provide you with a warm and friendly shopping experience while helping us earn important income from your donations. This means that from time to time, a shop may have to close earlier than advertised due to ill health or a prior commitment in our volunteers lives. It is therefore recommended you give a shop a quick call if you’re heading down later in the day to avoid disappointment
