Robin Hood Shop Plans Birthday Celebration

Feb 15, 2011 09:14PM ● By Anonymous
Festivities begin at 9:00 a.m. with refreshments. Throughout the day, shoppers will find a selection of spring merchandise, including designer hand bags, shoes and belts. Every shopper who makes a purchase will receive a chance to win a Robin Hood Shop gift certificate.

The Robin Hood Shop, located at 416 High Street in Cambridge, is operated by the Dorchester General Hospital Auxiliary. The shop will be closed on Monday, March 14 to prepare for the sale.

The Robin Hood Shop is an outlet for people who want to donate gently used clothing, toys, books and small household items. This merchandise is then re-sold at affordable prices. Proceeds from Robin Hood Shop sales represent a significant percentage of the Dorchester General Hospital Auxiliary’s annual gifts that fund programs and services offered at Dorchester General Hospital.

The Robin Hood Shop is open Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. For more information about making a tax deductible donation and joining the Auxiliary as a volunteer, call the Robin Hood Shop at 410-228-6339. Learn more online at
