Money well spent

SIR - With reference to your article in the WHT regarding the recent refurbishment of the British Heart Foundation charity shop in our town centre.
I find it hard to believe that anyone could be small-minded enough to criticise such a first class transformation.
Having worked for the Salvation Army charity shop, I know how important it is to provide a bright, welcoming facade to the shop entrance.
Surly this is an encouraging element in itself?
You may also want to watch:
The proceeds in any shop will be non-existent if the front window is dull and dreary.
I am sure the BHF knows better than anyone how much they can spend on refurbishing.

I called in this shop on Thursday to see for myself what, according to some, was a waste of money.
All the staff were rushed off their feet due to a packed out shop. They were very polite and helpful; not forgetting this work is very often voluntary.
Many customers commented on the first class shop front. I rest my case! So the cost involved will be recouped very quickly!
