Community Shop

16 Union Street

The Neighbourcare community shop has now been open for over 20 years. It is very well supported by the people of Andover and the local area.The aim of the shop was always different to that of other charity shops by putting any profits directly back into Andover's Community. Anyone visiting the shop can expect a friendly and warm welcome from all staff and volunteers. Donations of all types are welcome including clothes (please ensure these are freshly laundered), toys, books, music and household items provided they are in good saleable condition. Donations can be collected and small items of furniture are acceptable. At the present time we are unable to accept electrical items. Please call 01264 404142 for further information.
