The Mary Stevens Hospice shop has opened in the former WH Smith building in High Street.

Managing director Simon Henwood said: “What a great day, it was an unusually high turn out. 
“I think the queue snaked around the shop at one point. It was exceptional. There was a lot of interest and we even sold some of the furniture before we opened, which was fantastic.”

The grand opening at 11am and the Mayor of Dudley, Lady Mayoress, Leader of the Council Pete Lowe along with Hospice CEO Stevan Jackson (Pictured above).

One of the first customers, Lynne Shenton, from Stourbridge, said: “I think it is a great idea to have a shop here because its nice to have local charities represented in the town too.”
