Stock Clearance at Carrs Lane Fair Trade Shop
On 28 September, the Fair Trade Shop Committee at Carrs Lane Church reached the difficult decision to cease trading by 31 December 2020. The impact of the shop having been closed for the last six months, plus the ongoing restrictions as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, gave Committee members no other option. It is physically impossible to continue to operate the retail outlet from the Carrs Lane premises with all the restrictions in place.
A stock clearance is now taking place and there are two separate lists for food items and craft items. All items on both lists are subject to a discount of 25%, with food items that are beyond their ‘best before’ date subject to a 50% discount. All proceeds resulting from the clearance sales increase the final amount that will be donated to Traidcraft Exchange at the end of the year.
In order to have everything cleared by Christmas, the Fair Trade Shop needs many more orders, whether large or small. Food products which the Fair Trade Shop has significant stocks are tea bags, freeze-dried coffee, Divine chocolate, chocolate Easter Eggs (in date for Easter 2021), Geo muesli, jam, marmalade, BioD conditioner, laundry liquid, sanitiser, and ‘Clean and Fair’ soap.

Arrangements for home delivery (provided convenient) or collection (from Kings Heath or the Carrs Lane Church) will be made individually with all respondents, and the amount payable (to ‘Carrs Lane Fair Trade’) will be advised at the same time. Actual payment is due upon delivery or collection.
