A busy charity shop has been given a fresh, modern and eye-catching new look.
The popular East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) store in Histon Road, Cambridge, closed for just over a fortnight before reopening last Wednesday.
There was an official ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the occasion and staff, volunteers and customers celebrated with cake.
The makeover has included new fixtures, fittings and flooring, in addition to energy-efficient LED lighting.
“The shop looks amazing and it’s a complete transformation,” said Chris Wright, EACH’s Retail Area Manager for the North-West.
“We pretty much gutted out the old shop and reduced it to a shell, before starting again with a blank canvas.
“It’s a case of visual merchandising at its best and the feedback from customers has been extremely positive.
“Everyone’s over the moon with the changes and huge thanks go to our team of staff and volunteers who worked so hard to get everything ready.”
The Histon Road shop opened 13 years ago and is one of the busiest in the EACH portfolio.
The charity has 47 shops across East Anglia, including nine in Cambridgeshire.
There are two more in Cambridge, in Cherry Hinton Road and Milton Road, and others in Cherry Hinton, Ely, Huntingdon, Soham, St Ives and Whittlesey.
On the first day of trading, the new-look Histon Road shop took £1,770.
New volunteers are always welcome to join the team.
