New stock arriving weekly at Chapter Three

Cotten and linen were snapped up by shoppers at Chapter Three during last week’s heat wave but plenty of stock is still arriving for summer.

Items are being added to a sale rail each week so it is worth taking a look at that while you are in the shop.

New metallic and leather bags should be in by now too.

You’ll spot layout changes being made soon. Chapter Three owner Kay Bevan wants to make room for new jewellery displays and more clothing rails before the winter season starts.
