A new £1 charity shop in Hatfield has taken almost £3,000 in its first week of trading.
Launched by the Isabel Hospice, the venture sells clothing for £1 per garment and opened in White Lion Square on March 15.
Store manager Gemma Gough said business has been going “brilliantly”, and in-between serving customers, she told the WHT: “It has been manic.
“When the shop opened on the Saturday there was a queue of people outside [waiting] to come in.
“And we made about £1,500 when we opened that day.
