After being closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are staggering the opening of HARP charity shops in order to make sure we can do so in a way that is safe for all customers, donors, volunteers and staff. We now have an initial plan for easing out of lockdown on a shop-by-shop basis. This will help us to ensure that we have the chance to prepare each individual shop and make it "Covid Secure" before opening.
