Shopping success!

Posted on 17 November 2017 by Monika Reichelt

It’s been very successful few months for our Largs shop which has doubled its takings since the relocation to the Main Street! The move has proven popular with shoppers, donors, staff and volunteers alike. The new premises have also greatly improved the working environment for shop manager Joan Swan and her team of volunteers, who are all delighted with their new workplace.  Joan said:

“What a difference – it is brilliant. We have a larger back shop which makes sorting and processing the donations much easier. The fact we are now located on Main Street makes a massive difference. We are more visible, easier to find and the footfall has increased as we have more people just popping in.”

There has also been a shift in what customers are buying in the new shop, as Joan explains:

“Our top seller has always been ladies wear but since we moved shop we have also seen an increase in gents wear and surprisingly children’s toys.  All toys have to have a CE label attached or we are not legally able to sell them, but we can hardly keep up with the demand!”

Huge thanks to everyone who has visited the shop so far - your support is very important to us. If you are interested in donating or volunteering at the new Largs shop pop in and see Joan for more information or call her on 01475 687190.
