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!

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

We’re Almost there…

June and her team are working so hard to have the shop ready and open for business…steaming… pricing…stocking the shop…they can’t wait to open the door and let their loyal customers see the transformation!

Here’s a sneak preview…

…sorry I must have got my camera angle all wrong!!!

What’s Happening In Millom?

Our Millom Shop is currently closed…exciting news…it is having a refit!!

The end of last week was spent stripping it out ready for the refitting…it’s amazing how different a shop looks when it is empty of everything familiar!

It was great to see so many volunteers lending a hand to get it done.

I popped through yesterday and work was already well under way…new stud walls up…paintwork being prepared for painting…I can’t wait to see how it looks next time I’m there!

Seeing is believing…

I happened to pop to Grange this morning…they were having internet problems hence no blog this morning!

Their Christmas window…wow…I knew it was good…but honestly you need to get down and see it…it is amazing!

Growing up in Newcastle one of our Christmas traditions was to visit Fenwicks window on Christmas Eve…it was magical…Grange window today took me back to my childhood and put the magic back in Christmas. ..thank you Grange.

The thought…the detail…the love that has gone into creating this…absolutely wonderful…no wonder you won first prize in the decorated shop window competition…totally deserved!

 

There is only one…

There is only one…Retail at St Mary’s Hospice is the official Facebook page for all of St Mary’s Hospice shops and their Warehouse.

This is how it should look…

We will never change the name of the page or replace the logo without notice…if you click on this page you can trust it is St Mary’s Hospice Retail Department you are talking to…search for Retail at St Mary’s Hospice…you can’t go wrong!

The pictures below show Facebook pages which should no longer be operating for St Mary’s Hospice…

If you’re using Facebook and you find yourself directed to one of these pages or any others that say they are operating for St Mary’s Hospice Retail…please block them…they are not the official retail page…

This is the official Retail Facebook page below…it’s pretty awesome and well worth following…don’t bother with imitations when you can have the real thing!

If you visit our Facebook page please like and share…let everyone know how good it is…you can find out all you need to know about any of our shops!

The Best Kept Shopping Secret Is Out!

Barrow Shop where all clothes…shoes…accessories are £1…it used to be the best kept secret in Barrow but now it seems everyone knows about it!

We still get the odd customer coming to the counter to query the price but most people coming into the shop know that once you step past a certain point every item you pick up will cost £1…how great is that?

If you haven’t experienced the wonder that is St Mary’s Hospice Shop Barrow then maybe it’s time you did…you won’t believe the quality items you can buy for just £1!
