New look Acomb shop opens

24 August 2017
Martin House ambassador and ITV Calendar presenter Christine Talbot has helped us to launch a new-look shop in Acomb.

It features rustic shelving units and metal framed hanging racks, to give a shabby chic and vintage feel to the shop.

The shop is also the first to feature artwork created by our artists-in-residence and art therapists, to bring a touch of Martin House to the shop.

Stephanie Rimmington, Martin House retail manager, said: “The artwork runs through the heart of Martin House and we want to bring that to our shops so they are a reflection of our values and ethos, and so we can bring a piece of the hospice to the community.

“Our staff and volunteers absolutely love the new look, and it’s been really well received by the community. Our aim has been to create a more personal shopping experience for customers and supporters.”

In the coming months our Yeadon and Headingley shops will also be getting a new look, as part of a programme of upgrading which has already seen improvements at our Boston Spa, Wetherby, Harrogate and Skipton shops.
