On Thursday 26th April at 11am we will officially open our 23rd charity shop on Earlsdon Street!
We caught up with Lorraine Davies who will be the shop’s new Manager!
I first started as a charity retail volunteer in 2012 when my daughter was admitted to hospital for surgery and I couldn’t work full time. I absolutely loved it and eventually trained to be a manager and have been working in charity retail on and off since.
I left my last job in November 2017 was planning to take a year out but couldn’t stay away! I really enjoy working in this environment – it’s not often you get to do a job you truly love. I have always wanted to work for Myton because my mum was cared for by them so I have a personal connection.
I’m hoping to make the Earlsdon shop into a real part of the community! I’ve already got some volunteers lined up who know the area and the people so it will be great to have them on board. We’re going for a boutique feel with the shop. I’ve been getting tips off other managers while I’ve been working in their shops; everyone has been really nice and welcoming!
Please join us from 11am for the official ribbon cutting and first look at the new shop!
