The Hinckley Free Press have officially learnt that the charity, who support deafblind people and those with ‘complex’ disabilities, will serve and welcome the shoppers of Hinckley through their doors tomorrow, following a two-month wait.

The opening date was confirmed through signage placed in the storefront windows today (18 April), simply reading: “New store opening – Tuesday 19th April, 10am.”

It is housed inside of the town’s former Dorothy Perkins store, which was snapped up by Sense back in early February, when the interior renovation works from a womenswear store to a brand new charity shop had started to take place.

The unit has been fully refurbished with brand new storefront signage, decor, and many pre-loved goods – including vintage clothing, shoes, hats, bags, jewellery, books, and toys, just to name a few of the many items inside.

Until the Hinckley location was announced, shoppers have had to make a trip over to the neighbouring town of Nuneaton and visit their Abbey Street-based store.

Darryl Neville, Head of Retail at Sense, previously said about the new store: “We are excited to open a new Sense shop in Hinckley and look forward to welcoming the local community and a fantastic team of volunteers to the store.

Neville further explained: “We’ll be calling on the local community to support the shop through volunteering and donations, and we can’t wait to open our doors for business.”
