Alzheimer's Society shuts all of its charity shops due to low profits1

Fundraising | Vibeka Mair | 29 Aug 2012

Alzheimer’s Society has closed all three of its charity shops as they are not economically viable.

The charity's last remaining shop in Carlisle will close this week. It follows the closure of Alzheimer's Society charity shops in Maidenhead and Brighton last year.

Jeremy Hughes, chief executive of the Alzheimer’s Society, said the three shops were not making sufficient profit to continue.

Alzheimer’s Society had opened its shop in Maidenhead just 19 months ago. Its Carlisle branch had been running for 11 years, while its shop in Brighton had been going for 20 years. 

Hughes said: “We would like to thank all the staff and volunteers who worked tirelessly over the years to keep these shops running.”
