ONE of the UK’s leading disability charities has reopened its shop in Burton after the store was brought up to date with a facelift.
The Scope charity shop, in High Street, reopened on Wednesday after investment saw the premises fitted with a new vinyl floor, more efficient heating and lighting and new paintwork to bring the store in line with the charity’s recent rebranding.
The shop has been in High Street for more than 20 years and up until recently had not received much investment.
Shirley Stevenson, Scope area manager, said that the refurbishment was necessary to make the charity stand out and be different.
She said: “The refit looks absolutely fantastic. It is a great transformation and everyone is really pleased, and we have had some really positive comments.
“I would also like to thank the staff and volunteers who have worked so hard to get the shop open.
“At the end of the day it is about giving customers a better shopping experience and better equality for disabled people.”
Scope is a disability charity that supports disabled people and their families in England and Wales and works to raise awareness of their needs.
The charity also campaigns for the full inclusion and equal participation of disabled people in society.
