Trish had a great day meeting the Barrow teams, chatting about the Drop Your Pants campaign…happy days .

Drop Your Pants …

Anyone who shops with St Mary’s Hospice may have had a little chuckle…or raised an eyebrow as they checked out our cheeky window displays this week!

There is of course a serious message behind the lighthearted displays…we want to show our support and help raise awareness of testicular cancer…the signs and symptoms.

“Drop your pants” is a joined up campaign between 8 North West hospices…the idea behind the campaign is to highlight testicular cancer and the symptoms to look out for and at the same time encourage men to donate and shop with us.

If you want to support the ‘Drop Your Pants’ campaign you can drop off your clothes donations at any St Mary’s Hospice shops.

A Bit Of Chatter From Grange…

Did you know we have not just one , but TWO ebay shops?

http://stores.ebay.co.uk/stmaryshospicefurniturewarehouse/ and

http://stores.ebay.co.uk/hospiceofstmaryoffurness/

We send items of special interest or high value into our ebay shops so the millions of ebayers can see them and we get the maximum price possible. As an example from Grange shop alone this week, amongst other goodies I sent over Gucci and Fendi handbags !

It’s like Christmas every day unpacking donations, you just never know what will turn up next !

Have a look and see what you need on our ebay shops – guilt free retail therapy – it IS for charity after all !

Back To Work!

The holidays are well and truly over and it’s back to work with a vengeance! I don’t know about you but I don’t normally take such a long break from work…almost 3 weeks!

It was a shock to the system getting back into the work routine…but I think I’m up and running now! It takes at least a week to read through all the emails and updates but I feel I’ve finally got a grip and can concentrate on the important stuff now…like shop chatter of course…so much has been happening in retail and I can’t wait to tell you!

back to work

It’s Only A Day Away…

That’s right Millom opening is tomorrow…Thursday, 9am…you don’t want to miss it!

Finishing touches have been happening today and I think when you see it you’ll agree it looks amazing!

We’ve got one final teaser picture for you before unveiling the shop tomorrow…I hope you can join us there!
