The Red Cross shop at Scarffes Entry in Omagh town centre has been forced to close temporarily for repair following last weeks flash floods.
A complete refit is needed after floodwater left the premises badly damaged and ruined most of the stock. The shop will be closed until further notice.
Lynda Hamilton, Shop Manager in Omagh, is organising the repair work. She says;
We have a lot of water damage to deal with and we will probably be closed for a few months. I can only apologise for any inconvenience and ask our many customers to bear with us during this time.
Once the refit is finished we will need to completely restock and will be appealing to all our supporters at that time for help to get us back up and running.
In the meantime Red Cross customers can shop at, and take their stock donations to, the Red Cross shop in Irvinestown.
