The Myton Hospices has opened its first charity shop in Stratford, alongside Morrisons’ supermarket.
Cath D’Eath, assistant retail operations manager at Myton, said: “We are thrilled to have opened in the town. The shop being next to Morrisons is something very different for us and we are excited that people will be able to support Myton when they visit to do their grocery shopping.
“Myton’s services, particularly our inpatient units, serve the people of Stratford and this is a wonderful opportunity for local people to connect with us, as well as supporting the charity.”
Nick Watts, a commercial solicitor with Blythe Liggins in Leamington, who has handled the leases for Myton’s shops for many years, said: “This is an exciting addition for Myton Hospices. Having a shop alongside a popular store is a new thing for them, but should prove to be very successful for the charity.
“Where it is located will make it easy for people to park and make donations. They can just pack their items in the car and bring them along when they do their supermarket shop. It’s so convenient.”
The latest opening takes the total number of Myton shops in Coventry and Warwickshire to 26.
