One of Richmond's charity shops will be closed so that work can be done to give it a new look.
The Oxfam shop in Finkle Street will be closed for the next three weeks while work is done to create more floor space in the shop and to give the shop a makeover.
Walls between the shop and the current sorting room are to be knocked down to increase the shop floor area and enable separate departments to be created for books, clothes and household items.
Emma Norman, manager at the Richmond store, said: "Our main issue here is space, we get so many great items donated to Oxfam but at the moment we don't have enough space to put it out in the shop.
"The work that is being done will create a book room where the sorting office is, the sorting office will be moved downstairs and a new staff room will be created upstairs. We want to make it a better place for our customers and our staff."
Oxfam will be running a stall at the vintage fairs in Richmond Town Hall every first Tuesday of the month selling their genuine vintage donations.
