Jewish charity Norwood opened a menswear fashion boutique on Friday, 15 September at its Golders Green charity shop.
Selling clothing from high-end brands, with many of the donated items still brand new, the boutique’s opening is perfectly timed for Rosh Hashanah celebrations.
Norwood trading operations manager Kayt Mendies said she was “delighted to open the store after a lot of hard work from the whole team”.
“We really wanted to put together something that stands out from your usual charity shops,” she said. “People have already come in and commented on the high quality of the clothing, from suits to high-end shirts and footwear. Our aim is to provide Golders Green with a real option for men from across the community to come and shop for clothes. We’re really pleased with how it’s gone so far and look forward to seeing more people walking through our doors in the following weeks.”
Business was brisk on the first day of trading and the first shoppers were impressed with what they found. Items available at the boutique range from suits, dress shirts and shoes; as well as the usual selection of high-quality preloved men’s clothing associated with Norwood charity shops.
Early bird shopper Moshe said: “The new shop looks great. I have found some fantastic quality shirts. I wear white shirts for my Yeshiva studies during the week so this is really handy to have here. It’s nice to find such good quality at affordable prices.”
Fellow menswear enthusiast Avaz added: “It’s an amazing place. I love the new prices and layout. I’m in the Norwood shops all the time and it’s great to see this development. The clothes are great, really good quality and I look forward to shopping here in the future.”
Norwood’s Golders Green charity shop, current opening hours Mon – Fri 10am to 5pm and on Sun 10am to 4pm, is located at 87 Golders Green Road, North London. All purchases contribute towards helping Norwood make a real difference to the people’s lives Norwood supports.
