A CHARITY shop which was due to reopen this week will now stay shut after 'key suppliers' failed to deliver on time.

The Abingdon branch of Acacia UK, which was closed for almost three years after its site was destroyed in a suspected arson attack in 2017, announced plans to reopen the site earlier this month.

However Janet Hayes, CEO of the charity that supports children with physical and mental health problems in East Africa, said the store in Bath Street will now stay shut for the foreseeable future.

A date for a grand reopening will be announced as soon as possible.
