St. Margaret’s is delighted that two of our shops have been selected as finalists in the ‘People's Choice’ award at the Charity Retail Association annual conference.

Our boutique in Wiveliscombe and the furniture store in Yeovil both qualified to be displayed along with charity retail operations in the Best Shop Window and Best Shop Interior Wow! Factor Award category.

Photos from both will be on show throughout the conference in Nottingham on 26 and 27 June and delegates will judge the entries with the winners being announced on 27 June.

Robert Parsons, St. Margaret's Director of Retail, said: ‘The Wiveliscombe boutique has been really successful, offering a department store style shopping experience with a clean and minimalist décor, while our Yeovil store is much quirkier, given it is housed in an old cinema, and we have incorporated the really unusual acoustic ceiling into the design. We think they are both great examples of how charity shops are evolving to be a much more interesting and enjoyable customer experience but of course we will have to wait and see what the delegates think!’
